Judgment and Decision Making
First EditionNancy Kim©2018
How do we make the judgments that inform our lives? Is there any way of consciously removing bias from the choices we make? What do our everyday personal decisions have in common with those made by groups, companies, and even nations?
In this innovative textbook, Nancy Kim presents a multidisciplinary introduction to the dynamic field of judgment and decision-making. Throughout the book, insights from traditional cognitive approaches are combined with findings from fields as diverse as neuropsychology, behavioural economics, social, developmental and clinical psychology, and philosophy. It is an essential companion to any student taking a first course in judgement and decision-making, or a general survey course in cognitive psychology.
