Editorial Reviews

Review


"The Handbook provides an engaging and accessible survey of current philosophical studies of rationality, and a useful up-to-date roadmap of state-of-the-art thinking on this enduring topicThis is an authoritative sourcebook. Whereas each chapter can be read on its own and the references within each essay direct the reader to further writings in that topic area, the selection and arrangement of the topics are thoughtful and well-designed. Each author is undoubtedly among the best qualified candidates to undertake his or her commissioned chapter, and most essays are consistently of high quality."-Jing Zhu, Philosophical Psychology

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Rationality means many different things, and is not a field of study. Not surprisingly, a "handbook" of rationality reads more like an eclectic set of dictionary entries. There are some fine authors represented in this collection, but I found the subjects I know idiosyncratic and perfunctory, the authors managing to to make exciting topics seem boring. The subject I know less well or not at all I found bland and superficial. In no sense are these chapters reviews of the their respective fields. Rather, they are relatively narrow essays on particular topics.
