This chapter provides an account of the so-called minimal rationality. Minimal rationality requires not only that behaviour be under the causal control of thought or another representational state, but that it be explained by the content of that representational state. An example of minimal rationality is the learned behaviour in animals. A foraging bird, for example, may avoid eating a harmless butterfly because it looks like a butterfly that the bird has learned tastes bad.
