This chapter introduces the three central features of the epistemological framework that guides the prescriptions of Ameliorative Psychology (robust reliability, a cost-benefit approach to reasoning, and the importance of significance). It is argued that this framework offers a new way to think about applied epistemology. In particular, it suggests that there are four and only four ways for people to improve their reasoning.

Keywords:   reasoning, epistemological framework, robust reliability, cost-benefit approach, significance
