rational choice bleg
Question for the weekend: I am searching for an example of a theory or empirical work that combines rational choice theory with some other style of social theory. A few candidates:
- Analytical Marxism
- Michael Chwe’s theory of ritual and interaction
- A friend recommended Anthony Giddens’ structuration, as it has goal oriented actors who behave in endogenously created social structures
Other suggestions? Bonuses for recent work, work that is empirical, or accessible to general educated readers.
