Peter Dennis (LSE): What Is Rationality, Anyway?

13 January 2015, 6:30 pm8:00 pm

Appeals to rationality are found in every area of life. We all aspire to be rational, and criticise others when we think they’re being irrational. But how can we accuse one other of being irrational if we don’t know what it is? In this lecture, Peter Dennis will consider what rationality is—and why we need it.
