Collective action and rational choice : place, community, and the limits to individual self-interest

Rational choice, collective action, technological learning

Auteur :
MILLER, B.

Description :
The effects of place-based social relations on collective political action remain largely untheorized. Rational choice theory correctly problematizes collective action. The theory of Habermas provides a broader conception of rationality and focuses on social interaction rather than on isolated individuals. Places become less significant as bases for community and more significant in corporate location and investment decisions.
