Rationality has long been a central topic in philosophy, crossing standard divisions and categories. It continues to attract much attention in published research and teaching by philosophers as well as scholars in other disciplines, including economics, psychology, and law. The Oxford Handbookof Rationality is an indispensable reference to the current state of play in this vital and interdisciplinary area of study. Twenty-two newly commissioned chapters by a roster of distinguished philosophers provide an overview of the prominent views on rationality, with each author also developing aunique and distinctive argument.
Alfred R. Mele is at Florida State University. Piers Rawling is at Florida State University.

"The Handbook provides an engaging and accessible survey of current philosophical studies of rationality, and a useful up-to-date roadmap of state-of-the-art thinking on this enduring topicThis is an authoritative sourcebook. Whereas each chapter can be read on its own and the referenceswithin each essay direct the reader to further writings in that topic area, the selection and arrangement of the topics are thoughtful and well-designed. Each author is undoubtedly among the best qualified candidates to undertake his or her commissioned chapter, and most essays are consistently ofhigh quality."-Jing Zhu, Philosophical Psychology
