David Hume Institute Foundation - Research Centre on Normative and Institutional Evolution- is a research centre and academic think tank that aims to explore different lines of thought in the areas of law, humanities and social sciences, in order to understand the evolution of rules and institutions and make public policy proposals. The Foundation is named after the empiricist philosopher David Hume, a representative of the Scottish Enlightenment of the XVIII Century, whose ideas and spirit of free inquiry inspire today many of the newer schools of thought about man and society, especially those that offer an evolutionary view of institutions and propose an interaction between the social and natural sciences.
It is the purpose of the David Hume Institute Foundation to incorporate cutting edge research in the academic and political debate, such as the findings of evolutionary theory, experimental philosophy and economics, evolutionary game theory, behavioural law and economics, neurosciences, and the latest versions of public choice school, new institutional economics and rational choice theory. It develops research projects and organizes activities to diffuse them, aiming to provide a framework for public policy proposals that could be incorporated into the public agenda. It also promotes the interaction of researchers from different fields of knowledge and the collaboration between researchers, politicians and journalists.
