Book description

This volume is a state-of-the-art survey of the psychology of reasoning, based around, and in tribute to, one of the fieldOCOs most eminent figures: Jonathan St B.T. Evans.

In this collection of cutting edge research, EvansOCO collaborators and colleagues review a wide range of important and developing areas of inquiry. These include biases in thinking, probabilistic and causal reasoning, peopleOCOs use of OCyifOCO sentences in arguments, the dual-process theory of thought, and the nature of human rationality. These foundational issues are examined from various angles and finally integrated in a concluding panoramic chapterawritten by Evans himself.

The eighteen chapters, all written by leading international researchers, combine state-of the-art research with investigation into the most fundamental questions surrounding human mental life, such as:

What is the architecture of the human mind?

Are humans rational, and what is the nature of this rationality?

How do we think hypothetically?

The Science of Reason offers a unique combination of breadth, depth and integrative vision, making it an indispensable resource for researchers and students of human reason.
