Comparative decision making

Author: Thomas R Zentall; Philip H Crowley
Publisher: New York : Oxford University Press, [2013]
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Decision making cuts across most areas of intellectual enquiry and academic endeavour. The classical view of individual human thinkers choosing among options remains important and instructive, but the contributors to this volume broaden this perspective to characterise the decision making behaviour of groups, non-human organisms and even non-living objects and mathematical constructs.
