Decision Making In Social Sciences: Between Traditions And Innovations

Decision Making In Social Sciences
By Daniel Flaut & Šárka Hošková-Mayerová & Cristina Ispas & Fabrizio Maturo & Cristina Flaut


This book explores several branches of the social sciences and their perspectives regarding their relations with decision-making processes: computing, education, linguistics, sociology, and management. The decision-making process in social contexts is predicated on the analysis of sound alternatives using evaluative criteria. Therefore, this process is one that will be rational or irrational and maybe supported knowledge and/or beliefs. A decision-making process always produces a final judgment, which can or might not imply prompt action, and increases the probabilities of selecting the simplest possible alternative. The book is split into four main parts. The concepts covered within the first part, on computing, explore how the increase of algorithms and therefore the growth in computing power over the years can influence decision-making processes. within the second part, some traditional and innovative ideas and methods utilized in education are presented: compulsory schooling, inclusive schools, education, etc. In turn, the third part focuses on linguistics aspects and examines how progress is manifested in language. The one-fourth, on sociology, explores how society is often influenced by social norms, human interactions, culture, and religion. Management, considered a science of the decision-making process, is explored within the last part of this book. Selected organizations’ strategies, objectives, and resources are presented, e.g., human resources, financial resources, and technological resources.
The book gathers and presents, during a concise format, a broad range of aspects regarding the decision-making process in social contexts, making it a valuable and unique resource for the scientific community.
