Common Sense, Reasoning, and Rationality

Renee Elio


This book addresses three areas of current and varied interest: common sense, reasoning, and rationality. While common sense and rationality often have been viewed as two distinct features in a unified cognitive map, this book offers novel, even paradoxical, views of the relationship. The book considers what constitutes human rationality, behavior, and intelligence, while covering diverse areas of philosophy, psychology, cognitive science, and computer science.

Keywords: common sense, reasoning, rationality, cognitive science, human rationality, behavior, intelligence
