Synopsis

The Oxford Handbook of Rationality by Alfred R. (Professor of Philosophy, Florida State University) Mele

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. The Oxford Handbook of Rationality is an indispensable reference to the current state of play in this vital and interdisciplinary area of study. Twenty-two newly commissioned chapters by a roster of distinguished philosophers provide an overview of the prominent views on rationality, with each author also developing a unique and distinctive argument.

Reviews

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 *
