Reinhard Selten (1930-2016)
CREED mourns the passing away of Reinhard Selten (University of Bonn). A great, kind, inspiring, and unorthodox behavioral scientist is no more. From the start of his academic career he was interested in studying and modeling economic behavior both from a rational and, in particular, a descriptive (boundedly rational) perspective. The former culminated in seminal contributions to game theory for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1994, while the latter made him a pioneer in experimental economics and led to a life-long interest in modeling bounded rationality. In his view, any tool, method or theory, from whichever discipline, should be considered if it had the potential to improve our knowledge of behavior. He also favored exploratory experimentation to safe but unexciting incremental studies, and emphasized the use of sufficiently large numbers of independent observations that laboratory experimentation made possible. At CREED we will particularly remember him as a kind person and inspiring scholar, who helped the development of our lab through his encouragement and membership of its advisory board at the start, and his later regular involvement in its (non-)scientific activities.
