Abstract

The author expresses his views on the Robbins-Samuelson Argument Pattern (RSAP) in relation to the book "Economic Theory and Cognitive Science: Microexplanation," by Don Ross. RSAP was the pattern used by Ross to establish his conception of microeconomics, featuring the economic theory established by the late British economist Lionel Robbins and American economist Paul Anthony Samuelson. The author also comments on how Ross associated Robbins' theory of individual choice with the ordinal utility theory.
