The Oxford Handbook of Rationality
Edited by Alfred R. Mele and Piers Rawling
The Oxford Handbook of Rationality is a reference to the current state of play in the vital and interdisciplinary area of the study of rationality. Rationality has long been a central topic in philosophy, crossing standard divisions and categories. It continues to attract much attention in published research and teaching by philosophers as well as scholars in other disciplines, including economics, psychology, and law. Twenty-two articles provide an overview of the prominent views on rationality, with each article also developing a unique and distinctive argument. The book consists of two main parts. The first examines the nature of rationality broadly understood. The second explores rationality's role in and relation to other domains of enquiry: psychology, gender, personhood, language, science, economics, law, and evolution.
