This volume broadens our concept of reasoning and rationality to allow for a more pluralistic and situational view of human thinking as a practical activity. Drawing on contributors across disciplines including philosophy, economics, psychology, statistics, computer science, engineering, and physics, Reasoning, Rationality, and Probability argues that the search for strong theories should leave room for the construction of context-sensitive conceptual tools. Both science and everyday life, the authors argue, are too complex and multifaceted to be forced into ready-made schemata.
Maria Carla Galavotti is professor of philosophy of science in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Bologna. Roberto Scazzieri is professor of economic analysis in the Department of Economics at the University of Bologna. Patrick Suppes is the Lucie Stern Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Stanford University.
