This book deals with satisfaction analysis, that is, the way humans evaluate many aspects of their situation. It focuses on that which precedes decision taking (i.e., judgements and evaluations, likes and dislikes) on which preference orderings are based. Although written by two economists, the book covers many fields in the social sciences in the broadest sense, including psychology, sociology, and political science, with the aim of promoting discussion between the disciplines. It presents methodologies by which satisfaction can be analysed.
