Here is a nice site dedicated to Norwegian sociologist, the Robert Merton Professor at Columbia University, Jon Elster, a champion of an interesting (modified) rational choice and clearly methodological individualist sociology. It lists all Elster’s works, including some unpublished papers. Some works are downloadable. Unfortunately, nothing seems to have been done on the site since appr. 2000.

On the other hand his intellectual scope is so wide that he can probably be defined as a just about anything within the social sciences
