The book aims to expand the scope and enrich the foundations of decision theory. By addressing such issues as ambivalence, inner conflict, and the constraints imposed upon us by our attachments to others, Frederic Schick reveals that our thinking is often more subtle than standard theories of rationality allow. Only a theory that respects that subtlety can illumine what is otherwise puzzling. The book contains many examples drawn from history and literature dealing with subjects such as love, war, friendship, and crime.

Review:

"The book is clearly, simply, and engagingly written with gripping examples..." Jonathan Adler, CUNY

"This short, elegantly written book sts itself an ambitious agenda, undertaking to offer an overview of individual decision making under certainty, under risk, when values are multidemensional, and when they are conflicted. The book ougt to put Schick's important contributions in prospective for contemporary philosophers of mind, morals, and decision making." Jrnl of Philosophy
