Rationality and the Reflective Mind

Keith Stanovich

  • A serious attempt to resolve the Great Rationality Debate in cognitive science-the debate about how much irrationality to ascribe to human cognition.
  • Explains why the great feats of human cognition (science, logic, going to the moon) are not inconsistent with the fact that humans often behave irrationally.
  • Describes how rationality is a more encompassing concept than intelligence.
  • Sketches out how we might construct a test of individual differences in rational thinking.
