Allison defined the rationality theorem like this: There exists no pattern of activity for which an imaginative analyst cannot write a large number of objective functions such that the pattern of activity maximizes each function.

He used the theorem to attack any social science analysis that assumes a measure of rationality on the part of the actors.
