The main idea to this perspective is that action is tightly bound up with interpretation. Hence, sociological institutions insists that, when policy actors are discussing situations, the individual policy actor should find a way of recognizing it and responding to it considering the scripts, values, templates. Therefore, the relationship of the individual policy actor and the institution will be based on real reasoning. As a result, sociological institutionalism helps the policy actors in the policy adoption process.
Peirce’s theory provides the basis for the study of the role of the interpreter in this process and an ideology can begin to be developed based upon this knowledge. Developed from Pierces idea of the interpretant is the theory of encoding and decoding. Both Umberto Eco and Stuart Hall have presented viable ideas and theories around this subject.
