Abstract

This paper brings together two concepts, relative surprise and cultural bias. Both have deep roots in IIASA's intellectual tradition but they have been developed in widely separated fields. One has emerged from theoretical ecology and natural resource management; the other from social anthropology and the investigation of decision rationality.
