Judgement and Decision Making

Judgement and Decision Making

by Nick K. Chater (Editor)

Hardcover(Four-Volume Set)



Judgment and Decision Making brings together the classic works in the field of the past 50 years, both setting the field in historical and theoretical context, and outlining cutting edge research. The articles range across psychology, economics, sociology and neuroscience, and deals both with fundamental and applied research.

Volume 1, Foundations, sets out core background material.
Volume 2, Individual Decision Making, considers how people make choices, including choices between complex options, and choices involving risk and time.
Volume 3, Probability and Judgment, considers how people reason with uncertainty, estimate frequencies, and determine degrees of confidence.
Volume 4, Interactive and Group Processes, considers how people make decisions in social interactions, group decision making, and implications for economics and society.

About the Author

Nick Chater is Professor of Cognitive and Decision Sciences at the University College London. His research focusses on fundamental principles of cognition, which apply across several cognitive domains. He is particularly interested in problems of uncertain inference, that arise in learning, reasoning, and perception; and in models of judgement and decision making, based on cognitive principles. He also works on real-world applications of the cognitive and decision sciences.
