This Article addresses the long-standing assumptions about reason and behavior that underlie the Federal Rules of Evidence. Specifically, the Article explores the potential value to courts of new empirical evidence from the fields of behavioral economics and social psychology. The Article is an attempt to synthesize and critique a range of possible answers to the question of how evidence law should respond to new data on human decision-making and behavior from other fields.
