Can one reason with others? Representation(s) of the economic agent in team reasoning

Aude Lambert

Table of Contents


This paper aims to study the hypotheses of variable frame theory and their implications on the representation of the economic agent by underlining: 1) the fact that team reasoning is based on the internalization of the decision-making process; and 2) the fact that taking into account the subjective representations of these problems implies redefining the identity of the economic agent, i.e., his or her agency.
