Abstract:

This book proposes, from a cross-disciplinary perspective, an original reading of current work on residential choice and the decisions associated with it. Geographers, social-psychologists, economists, sociologists, neurologists and linguists have worked together in the context of collective research into evaluation, choice and decision-making in the use of urban and periurban spaces. A synthetic outlook has been constructed from these complementary scientific references. The book, which is designed as a handbook, also provides the opportunity to set out the different approaches to deal with the models which have been developed in this field. Contents • Individuals in Their Spatial and Social Environments • The Wheres and Hows of Residential Choice • Socio-Cognitive Accessibility to Places • Affect, Uncertainty, and Decision-Making • Neuroscience and Decision-Making • Spatial Decision-Making • Collective and Cooperative Behaviour Models • Observing The Decision-Making Process • Preferences, Utility, Choice, and Attractiveness • Determinism, Probability, and Imprecision in Decision-Making Target Groups • Lecturers and students of social science, geography and psychology • Social actors and decision-makers involved in regional development About the Editors Pierre Frankhauser has a doctoral degree in theoretical physics and in geography.
