We investigate a multifunction $x$→Ñ f $(x)$ derived via normal cones to the level sets Š $(x)$ := { $x^$' | $f(x^$') $< f(x)$} for an important class of pseudo--convex functions. It is shown that $x$→Ñ f $(x)$ is simultaneously both a maximally cyclically pseudo--monotone and a maximally pseudo-monotone relation within neighbourhoods on which $f$ is nonconstant. The relevance of this work to the problem of construction of a utility function from observations of revealed preferences of a consumer is discussed.
