PHIL 450 / PHIL 640: RATIONALITY
Instructor: Mariam Thalos
We speak of rationality in many contexts, both in theoretical contexts (devising theories or principles) and in practical contexts (making decisions). Is there a single conception of rationality (a single standard) that we invoke? If not, how does rationality break down in the disparate applications into its several standards? Most importantly: however many standards of assessment are involved in the invocation of rationality, how can we study rationality, whether in the laboratory or elsewhere, to understand its contours?
