I need to consider the impact of rational choice theory as it relates to my research on the value proposition. I think I hold to a subjective theory of value, at least on a practical level. And I would lean towards methodological individualisim. The danger is this: my work does not belong in any of these particular categories. I am not an economist, and I developed my thinking independent of these disciplines. In effect, I have been engaging in experimental philosophy before experimental philosophy was a recognized approach.
