Introduction and Critical Survey is designed for the non-mathematician and requires no advanced mathematical training. Robert Duncan Luce kuce, Howard Raiffa. The criticisms and adaptations of RCT have contributed to greater realism, empirical relevance, and increased moral considerations. The main purpose of this paper is to provide a brief overview of the rational choice approach, followed by an identification of several of the major criticisms of RCT and its conceptual and empirical limitations.

The raigfa maps a few key concepts and assumptions underpinning the conceptual model and empirical applications of RCT.

Chapters 5 and 6 treat two-person, nonzero-sum games and concepts developed in an attempt to meet some of the deficiencies in the von Neumann-Morgenstern theory. Allan LindTom R. Chapter 4 treats two-person, zero-sum games. He was the author of 11 books including Games and Decisions: Chapters 7—12 treat n- person games beginning with the von Neumann-Morgenstern theory and reaching into many newer developments. He was a member of the university faculty for 37 years before retiring in 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.
