Deontic Logic of Action: The Language

  • Martin van Hees
Part of the Law and Philosophy Library book series (LAPS, volume 23)


As discussed in the previous chapter, there is a lively debate in the theory of rational choice about the proper formalization and analysis of individual rights. Two positions have been distinguished: on the one hand the social choice approach in which the rights of an individual are defined in terms of pairs of alternatives with respect to which the individual is decisive and, on the other hand, game-theoretic approaches in which rights are defined through the use of game forms.
