On Russell Hardin’s Theory of Trust

Laszlo Zsolnai published a review article entitled “The Rationality of Trust” on Russell Hardin’s seminal book Trust and Trustworthiness (International Journal of Social Economics 2005. No. 3, pp. 268–269.)

Russell Hardin (1940-2017)

Zsolnai argues that Hardin’s theory should be enlarged, holding that the rational basis of trust is not only interest but can also be duty or love.
