About this product
- DescriptionIn The Grammar of Society, first published in 2006, Cristina Bicchieri examines social rms, such as fairness, cooperation, and reciprocity, in an effort to understand their nature and dynamics, the expectations that they generate, and how they evolve and change. Drawing on several intellectual traditions and methods, including those of social psychology, experimental ecomics and evolutionary game theory, Bicchieri provides an integrated account of how social rms emerge, why and when we follow them, and the situations where we are most likely to focus on relevant rms. Examining the existence and survival of inefficient rms, she demonstrates how rms evolve in ways that depend upon the psychological dispositions of the individual and how such dispositions may impair social efficiency. By contrast, she also shows how certain psychological propensities may naturally lead individuals to evolve fairness rms that closely resemble those we follow in most modern societies.
