    Ho-Chyuan Chen & William S. Neilson (1999). Pure-Strategy Equilibria with Non-Expected Utility Players. Theory and Decision 46 (2):201-212.score: 871.1
    A pure-strategy equilibrium existence theorem is extended to include games with non-expected utility players. It is shown that to guarantee the existence of a Nash equilibrium in pure strategies, the linearity of preferences in the probabilities can be replaced by the weaker requirement of quasiconvexity in the probabilities.

    William S. Neilson (2003). Probability Transformations in the Study of Behavior Toward Risk. Synthese 135 (2):171 - 192.score: 870.6
    Probability transformation functions were introduced into modelsof behavior toward risk to allow them to accommodate violations of the expected utility hypothesis.This paper examines the shape of the probability transformation function, its interpretation asoptimism or pessimism, and how the ranking of outcomes becomes important when probability transformationsare used. It also explores two behavioral implications: the overweighting of unlikely, extremeoutcomes, and intertia around certainty. Finally, the rationality of transforming the probabilitydistribution is discussed.

    S. Mezzadra & B. Neilson (2012). Between Inclusion and Exclusion: On the Topology of Global Space and Borders. Theory, Culture and Society 29 (4-5):58-75.score: 280.0
    The research hypothesis that we call border as method offers a fertile ground upon which to test the potentiality and the limits of the topological approach. In this article we present our hypothesis and address three questions relevant for topology. First, we ask how the topological approach can be applied within the heterogeneous space of globalization, which we argue does not obey the dialectic of inclusion and exclusion. Second, we address the claim of neutrality that is often linked to the (...)

    Jeffrey Williams (ed.) (1995). Pc Wars: Politics and Theory in the Academy. Routledge.score: 46.0
    PC Wars: Politics and Theory in the Academy addresses the very issue of political correctness and the current skirmishes in the culture wars. It includes statements from many of our leading contemporary public intellectuals, including Joan Wallach Scott, Michael Be;rube;, Bruce Robbins, Henry Giroux, and Gerald Graff. The collection marks a watershed in the debate about "pc" in that it presents serious considerations and analyses of the factors, causes, and consequences of the culture wars. Carefully examining the construction of "pc," (...)
