Title and abstract of thesis project:

My thesis project is centered in the phenomenological concept of social acts. The main interest I pursue with it is to explore the possibility of analyzing social organizations through the elucidation of the social acts in which they are constituted. The main idea at the current stage of the project is that social acts are intersubjective willing actions that can have different axiological grounds on the different subjects that take part on them.
