Description

A remarkably insightful look into the relationship between choice and the human condition, this book examines the philosophy of decision-making under conditions of uncertainty. It covers how we search for, accept, and discard information and presents the relationship between information, knowledge, complexity, and uncertainty. Placing mans relationship with uncertainty in a historical context, the book goes on to discuss the conceptualization of the interpretative effect of experiential and motivational factors on decision-making and how this relationship will continue to evolve.
