John Rawls: Getting beyond Social Choice Theory

I will present first the main tenets of Arrovian social choice theory,
and explain its relationship to decision and game theory. Then I will
offer conjectures why it was thought by many that this theory could
ground political philosophy. At the end, I will sketch John Rawls'
solution to the social choice problem.


The 60-minute lecture is followed by a 10-minute break. Then we held a
30-60-minute discussion.The participants may comment the talks and
initiate discussion on the Internet. The comments should be written in
the language of the presentation.
