Resource description

This paper presents a conceptual and formal framework that integrates both consequential and pocedural preferences. The Allais paradox and the Prisoners' dilemma are analyzed in light of this new perspective. Instead of being interpreted as paradoxes, these situtations reveal how utility or disutility for gambling (Allais paradox) or the influence of a social norm for cooperation (Prisoners' dilemma) influence rational behavior
