ABSTRACT: Francesco Guala (2007) has characterized the so-called Standard Model of Social Ontology – central assumptions shared by the most influential theories in the field – as consisting of three features: collective intentionality, performativity and reflexivity. I agree that Guala has correctly identified some central features of the early debate in traditional social ontology, but my discussion departs from Guala’s in three important respects. First, I show that Guala has identified three features of The Standard Model of Ideal Social Ontology rather than social ontology per se. Second, I create a more extensive Standard Model than Guala’s by providing a longer list of central features, thus offering a more detailed characterization of The Standard Model. Third, I make a stronger claim that Guala; I only include features that all, rather than most, of the theories share. Characterizing The Standard Model of Ideal Social Ontology is part of my overall argument that a paradigm shift is underway in social ontology and that this shift ought to be fully followed through.
