3rd Topoi Conference: New Trends in Rational Choice Theory (27-28 October 2016)
Idea and Motivation
Rational choice theory (RCT) has been philosophically explored for decades. In particular, its traditional guise of expected utility theory has long been both extremely useful in philosophy and heavily criticized. Still, many particular attempts to expand, question or replace expected utility theory have recently surfaced.
