    [fre] Nous abordons, dans cet article, le problème du choix dépendant du contexte posé dans Sen [1971, 1993, 1994, 1997] mais à travers une approche différente de celle adoptée dans Baigent et Gaertner [1996], Gaertner et Xu [1997, 1999 a, b, c]. Nous supposons, en effet, que le choix dépend du contexte parce que, fondamentalement, la préférence dépend du contexte, les agents respectant néanmoins le principe standard de maximisation de leurs préférences. Nous proposons une définition du choix rationnel dans ce cas de préférence dépendant du contexte. [eng] Explaining menu-dependent choices by menu-dependent preferences We deal here with the issue of menu-dependent choice set in Sen [1971, 1993, 1994, 1997]. However, we use a different approach to Baigent and Gaertner [1996], Gaertner and Xu [1997, 1999 a, b, c]. Indeed, we assume that choice is menu-dependent because preferences are menu-dependent.
