The rationalizability of a choice function on general domains by means of an ordering has been analyzed thoroughly by Richter (1966; 1971), Hansson (1968), and Suzumura (1977). Moreover, characterizations of various versions of consistent rationalizability have appeared in Bossert, Sprumont, and Suzumura (2005a). However, not much seems to be known when the coherence property of quasi-transitivity or that of P-acyclicity is imposed on a rationalization. This chapter develops a unified approach in order to characterize all forms of rationalizability on general domains.

Keywords:   rational choice, quasi-transitivity, P-acyclicity, consistency, choherence property
