  • Seppälä, Jaakko (Edinburgh University Press, 2015)
    The genre of the romantic comedy was domesticated in the studio era of Finnish cinema that lasted from the early 1930s to late 1950s by filmmakers who admired Hollywood films, an example of whom would be Valentin Vaala. This domestication was an easy process for the reason that romantic comedies are universal in tone, which means they can be set pretty much in any location, discuss context-specific problems related to relationships and be produced with the modest budgets of small nation cinemas. This has made the genre more than suited for Finnish cinema. Before analysing the Finnish films in detail, I am going to provide a quick background exploration of Finnish romantic comedies of the studio era in order to show the transformation.

    The suggestions outlined here include the following. Money is a bundle of institutionally sustained causal powers. Money is an institutional universal instantiated in generic currencies and particular money tokens. John Searle's account of institutional facts is not helpful for understanding the nature of money as an institution (while it may help to illuminate aspects of the nature of currencies and money particulars). The money universal is not a social convention in David Lewis's sense (while currencies and money particulars are characterized by high degrees of conventionality). The existence of the money universal is dependent on a larger institutional structure and cannot be understood in terms of collective belief or acceptance or agreement separately focusing on money. These claims have important implications for realism about money.
