Description - Choice in Everyday Life by Robert Urquhart

Social choice and decision-making are key topics in economic theory. Exploring the relations between choice and individuality, Robert Urquhart claims that individuality is possible only when individuals can make for themselves the choices that shape their lives. Urquhart suggests that mundane choices are paradoxically as fraught with difficulties as the grander, life-rending ones. Ranging from the literary to the cinematic, from war and crisis to everyday life, his fascinating book sees individuality as a difficult achievement but also an ordinary one. This book differs from the standard view in economics and choice theory in refusing to accept quantitative comparison as the basis for choice. Urquhart uses a broad range of disciplines to delve into this topic, resulting in a valuable reference for postgraduates and professionals in the fields of industrial economics and philosophy.
