While common sense and rationality often have been viewed as two distinct features in a unified cognitive map, this book offers novel, even paradoxical, views of the relationship. The book considers what constitutes human rationality, behavior, and intelligence, while covering diverse areas of philosophy, psychology, cognitive science, and computer science.
