Reviews

A welcome and timely addition to the philosophical andpedagogical literature. The book s clarity of organization,scope of detail, and insights into the nature and liability ofirrationality make this not only an excellent guide, but afirst-rate book-length treatment of the subject. George Graham, Georgia State University Employing striking every day and literary examples, LisaBortolotti surveys live cross-disciplinary debates about the roleof rational thought in mental health, decision-making, andexpertise. Philosophers and psychologists are increasinglysuspicious of the old dreams of reason, casting doubt ondeliberation and analysis as effective guides to life. Bortolottieffectively demonstrates the complexity of relations betweenreflection and intuition, and points the way towards more dynamicconceptions of intelligent thought. John Sutton, Macquarie University
