    Other-Regarding Preferences.Elias L. Khalil & Alain Marciano - 2021 - Social Theory and Practice 47 (2):265-298.
    The category “other-regarding preferences” is a catch-all phrase based on a self/other dichotomy. While the self/other might be useful when the motive is self-interest or altruism, it fails when the motive involves bonding. This article identifies three motives that involve bonding: i) the preferences regarding friendship and community; ii) the preferences that amalgamate communal bonding with self-interest; and iii) the preferences for distinction and status. These three types of preferences unify the self and other—usually aided by ceremonies of gift exchange (...)

    The Equivalence of Neo-Darwinism and Walrasian Equilibrium: In Defense of Organismus Economicus.Elias L. Khalil & Alain Marciano - 2010 - Biology and Philosophy 25 (2):229-248.
    Neo-Darwinism is based on the same principles as the Walrasian analysis of equilibrium. This may be surprising for evolutionary economists who resort to neo-Darwinism as a result of their dissatisfaction with Walrasian economics. As it is well-known, the principle of rationality does not play a role in neo-Darwinism. In fact, the whole (neo-)Darwinian agenda became popular exactly because it expunged the idea of rationality from nature, and hence, from equilibrium. It is less known, however, that the rationality principle is also (...)

    Buchanan's Catallactic Critique of Robbins' Definition of Economics.Alain Marciano - 2009 - Journal of Economic Methodology 16 (2):125-138.
    In 1964, Buchanan wrote an article in which he criticized the definition of economics given by Robbins in his Essay on the Nature and Significance of Economic Science. This article is remarkable because it represents Buchanan's attempts to redefine economics, that is, not only to propose his own definition but also to attack the standard, Robbins, definition of the discipline. More precisely, Buchanan thus offers a catallactic criticism of Robbins' definition. The purpose of this paper is to present and discuss (...)

    Intellectual Property and Theories of Justice.Axel Gosseries, Alain Marciano & Alain Strowel (eds.) - 2008 - Basingstoke & N.Y.: Palgrave McMillan.
    In this volume, fourteen philosophers, economists and legal scholars and one computer scientist address various facets of the same question: under which conditions (if any) can intellectual property rights be fair? This general question unfolds in a variety of others: What are the parallels and differences between intellectual and real property? Are libertarian theories especially sympathetic to IP rights? Should Rawlsian support copyright? How can a concern for incentives be taken into account by each of the main theories of justice? (...)

    A Theory of Instrumental and Existential Rational Decisions: Smith, Weber, Mauss, Tönnies After Martin Buber.Elias L. Khalil & Alain Marciano - 2021 - Theory and Decision 90 (1):147-169.
    This paper proffers a dialogical theory of decision-making: decision-makers are engaged in two modes of rational decisions, instrumental and existential. Instrumental rational decisions take place when the DM views the self externally to the objects, whether goods or animate beings. Existential rational decisions take place when the DM views the self in union with such objects. While the dialogical theory differs from Max Weber’s distinction between two kinds of rationality, it follows Martin Buber’s philosophical anthropology. The paper expounds the ramifications (...)
