In simple action theory, when people choose between courses of action, they know what the outcome will be. When an individual is making a choice "against nature," such as switching on a light, that assumption may hold true. But in strategic interaction outcomes, indeterminacy is pervasive and often intractable. Whether one is choosing for oneself... more...

Cities are conspicuous among settlements because of their bulk and pace: Venice, Paris, or New York.

This book... more...
