The publication of the first book by Kenneth Arrow and Herve
Raynaud, in 1986, led to an important wave of research in the field
of axiomatic approach applied to managerial logic. "Managerial
Logic" summarizes the prospective results of this research and
offers consultants, researchers, and decision makers a unified
framework for handling the difficult decisions they face. Based on
confirmed results of experimental psychology, this book places the
problem in a phenomenological framework and shows how the influence
of traditional methods has slowed their effective resolution. It
provides a panorama of principal concepts and theorems demonstrated
on axiomatized methods to guide readers in choosing the best
alternatives and rejecting the worst. Finally, it describes the
obtained extensions, often paradoxical, reached when these results
are extended to classification problems. The objective of this book
is also to allow the decision maker to maneuver his way through the
plethora of "multi-criterion methods" promoted by council
organizations by proposing a meta-method that will allow him to
distinguish the wheat from the chaff.
The collaboration with Kenneth Arrow comes essentially from the
fact that Arrow's work has influenced all subsequent works quoted
in this book. His famous impossibility theorem, his gem of a PhD
thesis, and his various other works resulted in him receiving the
Nobel Prize for economy just before meeting Herve Raynaud, who was
at that time a visiting professor at Berkeley University in
California. Their mutual publications serve as the basis for the
axiomatic approach in multi-criterion decision-making.
