Overview

For some rationality is one of the defining characteristics of being human. Yet the last decade or so has seen a growing debate about the characterization of human thinking in terms of the notion of rationality. The main impetus behind the debate has been the conflict

between theorists who propose that thinking is inherently logical, and hence rational, and researchers who have produced a large set of findings apparently demonstrating widespread and systematic deviations from the norms of reasoning prescribed by logicians and mathematicians.

Rationality draws together a number of the established figures in the field to present a state of the art review taking a cross-disciplinary perspective.
