Rational Ritual: Culture, Coordination, and Common Knowledge

By Michael Suk-Young Chwe | Go to book overview

Preface

Many people have helped me in many ways. I am grateful for comments received at presentations at the Rational Choice and Beyond: The Future of Political Economy conference at UCLA’s Lake Arrowhead; the Interactions-Based Models Workshop in the Social Sciences at the Santa Fe Institute; the Summer Institute for Theoretical Economics at Stanford University; and Cornell University. At New York University, I am grateful for comments received at the Austrian economics workshop and the Department of Politics. At the University of Chicago, I am grateful for comments received at the Applications of Economics workshop; the Chicago Humanities Institute; the Midwest Faculty Seminar on Rationality, Quasi-Rationality, and Rational Choice Theory; John Kelly’s graduate anthropology workshop; the Center for the Study of Politics, History, and Culture at Wilder House; and the Department of Political Science. I have also benefited from the suggestions and encouragement of Andy Abbott, Moshe Adler, Penny Becker, Ann Bell, Matthew Benuska, Sam Bowles, Robert Boyd, Randy Calvert, Xiaohong Chen, Karl Chwe, Myron Chwe, John Curran, Jim DeNardo, Prasenjit Duara, Steve Durlauf, Mahmoud El-Gamal, Jim Fearon, Magnus Fiskesjö, Douglas Gale, Ed Glaeser, Avner Greif, Bernie Grofman, Roger Guesnerie, Anna Harvey, Chang-Ling Huang, John Kelly, Boaz Keysar, Timur Kuran, David Laitin, Namhee Lee, Paula Lee, Susanne Lohmann, Kevin McCabe, Thomas McQuade, Stephen Morris, Ashok Rai, Garey Ramey, Stan Reiter, Peter Rossi, Duncan Simester, Lester Telser, Barry Weingast, Douglas White, Steve Wildman, Pete Wolfe, Libby Wood, and students in my graduate game theory classes. Many of their comments deserve specific attribution, but given the frailties of memory I am not sure that I can do this in a systematic way. Tyler Cowen, Herb Gintis, Sung H. Kim, Rohit Parikh, David Ruccio, Joel
