In Savage [41] a ‘behavioral foundation’ was given for subjective probabilities, to be used in the maximization of expected utility. This paper analogously gives a behavioral foundation for fuzzy measures, to be used in the maximization of ‘Choquet-expected utility’. This opens the way to empirical verification or falsification of fuzzy measures, and frees them of their ‘ad hoc’ character.
