Economic Learning and Social Evolution

The MIT Press series on Economic Learning and Social Evolution reflects the widespread renewal of interest in the dynamics of human interaction. This issue has provided a broad community of economists, psychologists, biologists, anthropologists, and others with a sense of common purpose so strong that traditional interdisciplinary boundaries have begun to melt away. The books in this series vary in character from theory, to expository, to commentary, but all have two unifying themes. First is the rejection of the outmoded notion that what happens away from equilibrium can safely be ignored. Second is the recognition that it is no longer enough to speak in vague terms of bounded rationality and spontaneous order.
