The book explores the relationships between economic theory and the theoretical foundations of related disciplines that are relevant to the day-to-day work of economics - the cognitive and behavioral sciences. It asks whether the increasingly sophisticated techniques of microeconomic analysis have revealed any deep empirical regularities - whether technical improvement represents improvement in any other sense." ;
