Abstract: Social dilemmas have become the focus of shared interest of economists and social psychologists. This essay surveys experimental studies in both disciplines related to those dilemma situations that somehow fit into the economist's category of public good provision problems. It focuses on their differences in theoretical framing and their use of the experimental method. It also describes and discusses the strategies that have been developing in economics in order to accommodate the experimental findings in new theoretical frameworks. Simultaneously it tries to identify unexplored topics in this field.
Os Dilemas Sociais constituem um tópico de interesse crescentemente partilhado por economistas e psicólogos sociais. Este artigo passa em revista estudos experimentais em ambas as disciplinas relacionados com as situações de dilema social que de algum modo se enquadram na categoria de problema de provisão de bens públicos tal como é convencionalmente visto pelos economistas. As diferenças no enquadramento teórico e no uso do método experimental são assinaladas. Descreve e discute também as estratégias que têm vindo a ser desenvolvidas em economia para incorporar os resultados experimentais em novos quadros teóricos. Procura simultaneamente identificar tópicos não explorados nesta área.
De plus en plus d'économistes et de psychologues sociaux s'intéressent aux Dilemmes Sociaux. Cet article passe en revue les études expérimentales, menées par ces deux disciplines, portant sur des situations de dilemme social, et plus spécifiquement sur le problème de la provision de biens publics tel que conventionnellement envisagé par les économistes. L'article souligne les différences théoriques associées au recours à la méthode expérimentale dans les deux disciplines et il décrit et discute les stratégies récemment mises en oeuvre en économie pour incorporer les résultats expérimentaux dans de nouveaux cadres théoriques. Finalement, des axes de recherche encore non explorés dans ce domaine sont identifiés.
