Abstract

This paper argues for a closer association between economics and sociology. The latter could benefit from the intellectual rigour of the former. Building a unified socio-economics requires an intellectual rapprochement between the sociologist conception of social interaction and a relaxed version of rational choice. Evolutionary game theory may provide one way forward.
