The wrap-up chapter attempts to distinguish what we know about conditional reasoning—what we have learned from research—from what we do not know about it. The question of how conditional reasoning should be done is likened to the question of what it means to be rational. The chapter concludes with the claim that although much has been learned about conditional reasoning from research, many questions remain, with respect both to how it is done and to how it should be done; and that in view of its importance to an understanding of human capabilities and limitations, conditional reasoning is likely to remain a major focus of research for a long time to come.
