This paper suggests an alternative list of institutions to that commonly encountered in the literature on institutional logics. This is done as a response to calls for greater clarity about basic terms. The resources of history are drawn upon to formulate the suggested candidates for the status of institution, with brief outlines for each of some key attributes. It is argued that the proposed specification would enhance the possibilities for comparative analysis.
