  • Carries out an epistemological analysis of  decision
  • Argues that a third way between normative and descriptive accounts of rationality in decision theory is possible
  • In this book, naturalism is inspired by the biology of complex systems and the neuroeconomics
This book  carries out an epistemological analysis of the decision, including a critical analysis through the continuous reference to an interdisciplinary approach  including a synthesis of philosophical approaches, biology and neuroscience. Besides this it represents the analysis of causality here seen not from the formal point of view,  but from the "embodied" point of view. ​
