The first embedded mode of reasoning to be examined is institutional rationality. Its significance lies in its critique of a universalistic concept of rationality.

Inthe American Association for the Pages: Rationality is the quality or state of being rational – that is, being based on or agreeable to reason. Rationality implies the conformity of one's beliefs with one's reasons to believe, and of one's actions with one's reasons for action.

"Rationality" has different specialized meanings in philosophy, economics, sociology, psychology, evolutionary biology, game theory and political science. Rationality The theme of the irrational can be traced through many of the texts we’ve covered this semester, though it is not always approached in the same manner.

Indeed, what exactly constitutes “irrationality” itself can be and is defined differently by singular texts. Accessible even to students with no background in psychology, this book will also be of interest to scholars who study the development of rationality, morality, and/or identity, especially those who are concerned with the interrelations among these domains and with theoretical questions concerning the nature of psychological development beyond.

This book promotes bounded rationality as the key to understanding how real people make decisions. Using the concept of an "adaptive toolbox," a repertoire of fast and frugal rules for decision making under uncertainty, it attempts to impose more order and coherence on the idea of bounded rationality.

The contributors view bounded rationality. Economic rationality is a part of the taken-for-granted assumptions of how organizations are understood and studied.

Organizations have economic purpose and intent; organizational structures, systems, and policies are designed to achieve goals or ends. Ergo, organizations are rational. All this notwithstanding, there is an abundance of literature illustrating that organizations often follow.

THE NATURE OF RATIONALITY is a fascinating discussion of rationality, which is defined as a special method of thinking which is limited to the human species.

Investigating the omnipresent religious theme that runs throughout Russian culture, even in the antireligious Chekhov, Frank argues that no other major European literature was as much preoccupied as the Russian with the tensions between religion and rationality.

This book addresses an apparent paradox in the psychology of thinking. On the one hand, human beings are a highly successful species; on the other, intelligent adults are known to exhibit numerous errors and biases in laboratory studies of reasoning and decision making.

There has been much debate among both philosophers and psychologists about the implications of such studies for human. Benjamin Kiesewetter's book is a sophisticated and extremely thorough examination of the question of whether rationality is normative.

In his new book, Bounded Rationality in Macroeconomics, Sargent does not quite apostatize. Yet, he does concede that rational expectations modeling leaves important research and policy questions unanswered.
