Ratio-Scale Measurement with Intransitivity or Incompleteness: In my contribution, my purpose is to identify the seeds of a fruitful collaboration between economists and psychologists and how it turned out to be uncompleted, due to protective efforts by many economists and by some psychologists too to avoid challenging one component of rational behavior: Whereas transitivity was a serious subject for economists and psychologists in the s and s, it was so important within the theory of rational behavior—first of all because it is central for the use of a utility function—that abandoning this axiom was seldom conceived of, and would even be considered as a taboo.

Intransitivity and Priority Setting.

The talk explores the alternative route of generalized mixture models, in which the sample space of permissible latent preference states is a family of transitive binary relations e.

This colloquium will discuss methodological concerns about past research on preference in transitivity in individual decision makers.

It holds that Tversky will be among the first psychologists to disconnect the modeling of choice from the measurement issue. The Condorcet paradox shows that transitive individuals may violate weak stochastic transitivity at the level of aggregated data. Given this stock of past studies, Tversky’s goal is to go a step forward in constructing choice situations where Weak Stochastic Transitivity is violated and to understand the elements in the choice situation that lead to this violation and the modeling adapted to it additive choice.
