Cordoning Competence: A Reply to Cohen
Yeshiva University - Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law
Synthese, Vol. 99, No. 2, pp. 177-179, May 1994
In Rationality and Reflective Equilibrium, 99 Synthese 137-172 (May 1994), the author argued that it is possible for our underlying reasoning ability to diverge from the normative principles of reasoning. Jonathan Cohen, in his reply to that article, A Reply to Stein, id. at 173-176, argued that this is conceptually impossible, thereby defending the view that humans are rational. In this brief reply to Cohen, the author gives two further examples to support his argument that empirical evidence (e.g., from psychology, neuroscience, and evolutionary theory) can count against human rationality.
