Book Title: Sour Grapes: Studies in the Subversion of Rationality

Author: Jon Elster

Book Description:

This is a classic book on autonomy and adaptive preferences.  Although some of my work is critical of Elster, this was the jumping-off point for a significant portion of my research.  It is required reading for any philosopher working on adaptive preferences, autonomy, value theory, rationality, and a range of other issues in ethics and social and political philosophy.
