Epigraph of the Day

Before launching into Chapter 1 of The Bounds of Reason: Game Theory and the Unification of the Behavioral Sciences, Herbert Gintis attributes the following to "Anonymous." Having read the Preface, I'll bet a dollar he said it himself.

People are not logical. They are psychological.

Hat tip to claymisher, who has also directed me to watch a video of Gintis delivering the lecture "Five Principles for the Unification of the Behavioral Sciences."
