CT and rational choice theory

greenspun.com : LUSENET : GLASSER Choice Theory & Reality Therapy : One Thread

I did a web search using 'Google' and put in 'Choice theory'- it came up this many interesting and useful sites (including this one!) but it also came up with sites labelled 'Rational Choice Theory'. Does anyone know what this is or if it is very different to 'Choice Theory'?

I followed you into Google and found the "Rational Choice Theory" you spoke of. It seems very different from "Choice Theory" and predates it by a considerable margin. Choice Theory is a name that is only a few years and was chosen to describe a theory that grew from the "Control Theory" of William Powers but changed so much that it required a new identity.
