Reason and Rationality Works Cited

Promotional Information

Jon Elster's Reason and Rationality is characteristically erudite, elegant, and philosophically sophisticated. It beautifully encapsulates lines of research that Elster has been developing for years, and it serves as a wonderful introduction to his more technical work. -- Daniel Weinstock, University of Montreal This short book presents a broad synthesis of Jon Elster's work on reason and rationality, and their complex relations to interest and passion. With clarity and elegance, it presents some of the main positions of one of the most important authors on the subject. Reason and Rationality is a pleasure to read. -- Dominique Leydet, Universite du Quebec a Montreal

About the Author

Jon Elster holds the Chaire de Rationalite et Sciences Sociales at the College de France. Among his recent books are "Explaining Social Behavior" and "Closing the Books: Transitional Justice in Historical Perspective".


"For those with some grounding in the study of human behaviour, Elster does a remarkable job of bringing together seemingly disparate concerns... [T]his essay (as it effectively is) provides a concise overview of his dominant concerns and a useful introduction to his thought."--Ben Saunders, Political Studies Review "I highly recommend the book, which explains in clear and simple terms the complexity of human behavior and the logic that underlies it."--Aaron Ben-Ze'ev, European Legacy
