Rationality and the Reflective Mind

Richard F. West

Oxford University Press

This chapter uses the tri-process model and other distinctions introduced in the book to develop a taxonomy of rational thinking errors that have been revealed in the heuristics and biases literature. The taxonomy is used to classify a large number of tasks and effects from the literature on judgment and decision making. The chapter also stresses the importance of knowledge bases (so-called “mindware”) in determining the rationality of beliefs and actions.

Keywords:   rational thinking errors, judgment, decision making, knowledge bases, rational thought
