The Introduction defines rationality as being at the heart of many different disciplines, including economics, political science, philosophy, psychology, management science, and sociology. It asks the question: is reationality being used to mean the same thing by all these disciplines?

The Introduction then goes on to discuss the author's strategy in the book
