Rational choice theory in sociology has its adherents and detractors. But as one of the few general theories of how individuals, groups, organizations and social strucutres behave, its impact on sociological theorizing has been enormous. In this volume, some of the leading figures in the debate, both advocates and critics, present their views of the value and limitations of rational choice theory. Some of the adherents link it to similar broad theoretical models developed by other sociologists - exchange theory and solidarity theory, for example.

Rational Choice, Collective Decisions, and Social Welfare by Kotaro Suzumura

Left freely to themselves, a group of rational individuals often fail to cooperate even when the product of social cooperation is beneficial to all. Hence, the author argues, a rule of collective decision making is clearly needed that specifies how social cooperation should be organised among contributing individuals.

Philosophy of Social Science provides a tightly argued yet accessible introduction to the philosophical foundations of the human sciences, including economics, anthropology, sociology, political science, psychology, history, and the disciplines emerging at the intersections of these subjects with biology. Philosophy is unavoidable for social scientists because the choices they make in answering questions in their disciplines force them to take sides on philosophical matters.
