We have focused on a number of leading contributors faiffa others, several Nobel Prize Recipients annd economics, who have addressed rational choice issues. The results obtained, based on our literature reviews and analyses, are the identification of several major limitations of RCT as well as selected modifications and adaptations of choice theory which overcome or promise to overcome some of the RCT limitations.

Allan LindTom R. In conclusion, the article suggests that the adaptations and modifications made in choice theory have led to substantial fragmentation of choice theory and as of yet no integrated approach has appeared to simply displace RCT.

It offers a comprehensive, time-tested conceptual introduction, with a social science orientation, to a complex of ideas related to game theory including decision theory, modern utility theory, the theory of statistical decisions, and the theory of social welfare functions.

It will likewise be indispensable for students in courses in the mathematical theory of games and linear programming.

Introduction and Critical Survey is designed for the non-mathematician and requires no advanced mathematical training. Our method has been to conduct a brief selective review aand rational choice theoretical formulations and applications as well as a review of diverse critical literature in the social sciences where rational choice has been systematically criticized.

The developments entail, among other things: The last two chapters, 13 and 14, discuss individual and group decision making. He was a co-founder of the John F. This book represents the earliest clear, detailed, precise exposition of the central ideas and results of game theory and related decision-making models — unencumbered by technical mathematical details.

Eight helpful appendixes present proofs of the famous minimax theorem, several geometric interpretations of two-person zero-sum games, solution procedures, infinite games, sequential compounding of games, and linear programming. Otz, James Hassett, Ines Otz.
