The Illusion of Understanding for Thinking, Fast and Slow – Daniel Kahneman

Via Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

In recent years there has been a great amount of research on the study of the neural mechanisms of economic decisions, a scientific field currently known as Neuroeconomics (Camerer, 2003). This has been promoted by the development and use of imaging techniques, particularly functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), for the exploration of brain activity. Neuroeconomics is an interdisciplinary field, as is decision making, in which the efforts of psychologists and economists join up with those of the neuroscientists, resulting in the participation of research specialists of different scientific fields in a given research.

Richard Thaler – Economic Behavior in Unusual Places

Via Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

Richard Thaler is renowned for his extremely influential contributions to the emerging field of behavioral economics over the last three decades. He has made it his habit to look for data in unusual places. Here he draws on the behavior of New York City taxi cab drivers, game show participants, and National Football League teams to see what can be learned about human behavior. Thaler is Professor of Behavioral Science and Economics, and Director of the Center for Decision Research, Graduate School of Business, University of Chicago. Series: “UC Berkeley Graduate Council Lectures”

AT THE EDGE OF CHAOS: A NEW PARADIGM FOR SOCIAL WORK

Via Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

The search for a unified conceptual framework for social work h s floundered as the profession has struggled with general systems theory (GST), and mostrecently, the ecosystems perspective. At the same time, social work has ignored chaos or complex systems theory which is not only the successor to GST, but some believe , is the third major scientific revolution of the 20t Century, following relativity and quantum
theories. This article reviews key concepts and applications of chaos theory in the context of the general systems perspective and concludes that although it is premature to declare that chaos theory repre sents a new paradigm for social work, it promises to solve many of the problems posed by the now dated general systems approach.
