The rational analysis of mind: a dialogue
This book seeks to convince the reader that the project of developing a rational analysis of human reasoning based on probability theory has been fruitful, and that it has considerable promise in the future. But, in pursuit of a clear presentation of the authors’ main theses, they have left a range of puzzles and concerns outstanding. This final chapter takes the form of a dialogue between a sceptic and an advocate of the approach. The aim is to give an intuitive sense of the thinking underlying this book and its broader intellectual context, as well as stressing challenges for, and assumptions of, the approach. It hopes some readers may be intrigued enough to take part in the ongoing academic dialogue on rational analysis and human reasoning.
