Thinking and deciding by Jonathan Baron( Book )
65 editions published between 1988 and 2012 in English and German and held by 1,669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Thinking and Deciding has established itself as a required text and important reference work for students and scholars of human judgments, decisions, and rationality. In this, the third edition, Jonathan Baron delves further into many of the key questions addressed in the previous editions. For example, how should we think? What, if anything, keeps us from thinking that way? How can we improve our thinking and decision making? Baron has also revised or expanded his treatment of topics such as risk, utilitarianism, Bayes's theorem, utility measurement, decision analysis and values. By emphasizing decision making, Baron has made Thinking and Deciding, Third Edition, more relevant to researchers in applied fields, such as medicine, business, public policy, and law, while maintaining its appeal to graduate and undergraduate students."--Jacket
Against bioethics by Jonathan Baron( Book )
17 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 1,233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bioetik er ofte baseret på intuitive vurderinger snarere end teorier, og forfatteren af denne bog argumenterer for, at bioetik kan baseres på en sammenhængende teori med udspring i utilitarisme og beslutningsteori. På denne måde kombineres utilitarismens nyttetænkning, hvor den bedste løsning også forventes at være den der gør mest godt, med beslutningsteoriens cost-benefitanalyser og risikovurderinger
Judgment misguided intuition and error in public decision making by Jonathan Baron( )
11 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 1,151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
People often follow intuitive principles of decision making, ranging from group loyalty to the belief that nature is benign, treating them as absolutes and ignoring the consequences of following them blindly. The author explores these deeply felt intuitions and their effect on the public domain
Rationality and intelligence by Jonathan Baron( Book )
15 editions published between 1985 and 2005 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Psychological perspectives on justice : theory and applications ( Book )
12 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Justice is a central concern in everyday life; we are constantly confronted with situations that require us to assess the fairness of individuals' acts and institutional policies. These situations often involve difficult trade-offs between equality and efficiency, self-interest and cooperation, or short-term consumption and long-term savings. Psychological Perspectives on Justice explores our intuitions about fairness in the distribution of costs and benefits. Some of the chapters examine the extent to which individual behavior deviates from normative theories of justice, discussing competing theories such as utilitarianism and economic efficiency. Other chapters discuss the various rules that people use to make fair distributions, the motivation for people to conform to rules of fairness even when they conflict with self-interest, the differences between liberals and conservatives in their views of justice, and the rules that societies use to distribute or allocate scarce resources. The mixture of theoretical and applied perspectives provides a balanced look at the psychological underpinnings of justice

Teaching decision making to adolescents by Jonathan Baron( Book )
11 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book describes a variety of programs -- firmly based in psychological theory and modern decision analysis -- that are suitable for teaching adolescents how to improve both their own decision making skills and their understanding of the decision making of others. Providing practical advice as well as theoretical analysis, this volume addresses general questions such as the nature and rationale of the enterprise, its implementation, and its evaluation. Relevant to several current adolescent problems including drug abuse, this is an excellent source, either as research, new curriculum, or en
Conflict and tradeoffs in decision making ( Book )
8 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What makes some decisions easy and others difficult? Research in judgment and decision making indicates that conflict plays a decisive role in decision-making processes. The essays in this book, originally published in 2001, address questions about the causes of conflict and its effects on decision making and emotions, particularly (but not only) the emotion of regret. Several chapters address the role of attribute tradeoffs, such as that between money and risk, in the measurement of values for policy purposes. The chapters provide overviews of several research programs and present intriguing data. Methods involve hypothetical scenarios, other questionnaires, interviews, and observations of behavior outside the laboratory. Although most authors are influenced by psychology, others take economic and sociological approaches
You can't enlarge the pie : six barriers to effective government by Max H Bazerman( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"But if pragmatic business leaders have adopted such non-adversarial techniques, why has government grown increasingly combative? Why do our government leaders continually make decisions and craft policies that everyone knows are imprudent? It's not because they're ignorant or corrupt, but because our leaders, like the rest of us, are trapped in careless and unproductive habits of thinking. With case studies and clear, compelling analysis based on the latest decision-making and negotiation research findings, Bazerman, Baron and Shonk dissect six flawed ways of thinking that serve as psychological barriers to effective governments."--Jacket
Morality and rational choice by Jonathan Baron( Book )
10 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book develops and defends a version of utilitarianism, including expected-utility theory, as a normative model of decision making. The defense, based on the idea of utility as achievement of goals, considers the endorsement of a norm as a decision and asks what reasons we have to endorse norms for decision making. The reasons derive from our pre-existing goals, so any norm we endorse must not fly in the face of these goals, although it must not be selfishly biased, either. This approach is further clarified by drawing distinctions between decisions for the self, for a single other person, for several others, and for the self and others. The book discusses the implications of this argument for the psychological study of decision making, the act--omission distinction, moral education, decision analysis, risk analysis, and other questions of public policy. The final chapter sketches a prescriptive approach to group decision making

In volume 1, psychologist Arthur Jensen defends his contention that intelligence is a fact of nature.

Group cooperation under uncertainty ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Previous research has shown an interindividual-intergroup discontinuity effect: intergroup interactions generally lead to less cooperative outcomes than interindividual interactions. We replicated the discontinuity effect in the deterministic prisoners dilemma, but we found that groups were more cooperative than individuals in a stochastic version of the game. Three major factors, greed, fear, and persuasion power that underlie the usual discontinuity effect, were reduced in the stochastic environment. Two group mechanisms were responsible for the reversed discontinuity effect: the motivation to avoid guilt and blame when making decisions that affect others welfare, and the social pressure to conform to certain norms when one is in a group setting
