ABSTRACT

Rational choice theory that came out against over determinism of macro level theory which puts emphasis on structure and system thinks of a phenomenon as a consequence of actor's rational and strategic choice. Rational choice theory can be set a high value in that offers the micro foundation of the social phenomenon in a sophisticated logic, but it was pointed out that it has the several theoretical and methodological limits. In response to this critique, the inner school of rational choice theory has been expanding its horizons in incorporating institution, culture, and history into its theoretical and methodological framework in recent years, and this essay examined into three contexts of rational choice institutionalism, sociological rational choice theory, and analytic narratives.
