John R. Commons was one of the most important institutional economist of America. He has relevant contributions in economic theory such as in the price theory, the economic role of the law, etc. Despite this, in Brazil Commons is not much studied and his economic theory pratically unknowned by brasilian economists. So this research aims to identify, to describe, and to analyse the microfoundations of John Commons economic theory. Specifically, it will 1) analyse his theories of rasonable value, of the firm as a going plant and a going business and his approach to the capitalist competition; 2) to explain the genesis of these institutions in the sense of provide commonsian microfoundations to capitalist dynamics, and 3)compare his vision to that one presents in the economic thought of his age.
