Title: Economic Reason: The Interplay of Individual Learning and External Structure
Authors: Clark, Andy
Issue Date: 1996
Citation: "Economic Reason: The Interplay of Individual Learning and External Structure" J. Drobak and J. Nye (eds) The Frontiers Of The New Institutional Economics (Academic Press: San Diego, CA 1996) p.269-290
Publisher: Academic Press
Abstract: Much work in economics, the social sciences, and elsewhere takes as it starting oint a somewhat unrealistic conception of rationality- a conception that ignores or downplays both the temporal and the situated aspects of human reason. Biological reason, I shall argue, is better concieved as an iterated process of adaptive response made under extreme time pressure and exquisitely keyed to a variety of external structures and circumstances.
