"Es" y "deber ser" en las teorías de la decisión acerca de la condición normativa de la teoría de la decisión racional


  • Giancarlo Romano G.



El artículo discute la exposición de Santiago y Cante (2009) de la teoría de la decisión racional (TDR) y el modelo de utilidad esperada y controvierte su afirmación de acuerdo con la cual la Prospect Theory (PT) de Kahneman y Tversky pone en riesgo el estatus normativo de la TDR. Para ello se explica cuál es la condición normativa de la TDR y su justificación conceptual y preceptiva. También se muestran algunas implicaciones normativas de la PT difíciles de sostener y se cuestiona que la PT pueda servir de modelo normativo alternativo a la TUE.
