    • 7 Pages

    In the article, Beyond the rationality of economic man, toward the true rationality of human man, by John Tomer, we once again see the argument of what rationality truly is come to light. In this particular article Tomer stands on the side that mainstream economics and the idea of economic rationality is not a complete rationality. He goes on to explain that true rationality will be a combination of bother instrumental rationality and rationality of ends (Tomer 1704). The combination of the two creates a process in which appropriate reason is used to choose the best possible means to an end, and an end that serve’s our best interest (Tomer 1704).

    the transition of regimes. These regimes’ persistence is embedded in their cultural foundations and institutional structure (Yom and Gause, 2012). Elliot Abrams (2012) claims that the historical connection of the Arab monarchies give them their strength and legitimacy. He explains how the monarchy is often sustained by religious belief, and this gives them more legitimacy than any self-appointed strongmen (Abrams, 2012).

    Neorealism assumes the state will always make the rational choice to maximize its utility. In neoliberalism, non-state actors such as civil societies and individuals also make rational choices. Both theories borrow ideas from the theory of rationalism (Wendt, 1992). Constructivism, on the other hand, does not make such assumption about rationality. By no means is constructivism suggesting that actors are irrational, but it provides us with two cautionary tales about rationality. The first…
