The Paradox of Social Order

“Drawing upon his training as a psychologist, Moessinger focuses on strengthening the foundations of the social sciences with hypotheses that chal­lenge commonly–held rational choice theories drawn from economics. In con­trast to the rational choice theories of Becker, Hayek, Popper, and others,  he argues that the stability of social structures ultimately results from a linkage of nonrational individual conduct (interpersonal imbalances. confu­sion of minds. etc.) with social order and hence, that a larger role for psychol­ogy is essential to the study of the social sciences.” Mario Bunge
