Thus, the buyer is left with a feasible subset of alternatives that can be physically examined and decided about in a more detailed way. The latter decision process is Stage 2. Once the alternatives are narrowed to a feasible subset, the "hardcore" decision process occurs in Stage 2.
Model builders typically do not test their models with new empirical research, tending rather to illustrate them with simplified, or even imaginary, examples. This has led Dreyfus (1972:188) to suspect many formalists of choosing highly simplified areas of experience where problems can be solved with formal procedures, rather than letting prior theoretical commitments determine which problems should be attempted. " This seems to put the cart before the horse, to say that we are to be mathematicians first and problemoriented social scientists only when the mathematical conditions per6 mit.
