The Routledge International Handbook of Thinking and Reasoning is an authoritative reference work providing a well-balanced overview of current scholarship spanning the full breadth of the rapidly developing and expanding field of thinking and reasoning. The Handbook contains 35 chapters written by internationally-leading researchers, covering foundational issues as well as state-of-the-art developments in thinking and reasoning research, both in relation to empirical evidence and theoretical analyses.
Topics covered range across all sub-areas of thinking and reasoning, including deduction, induction, abduction, judgment, decision making, argumentation, problem solving, expertise, creativity and rationality. The contributors engage with cutting-edge debates and pressing conceptual issues such as the status of dual-process theories of thinking, the role of unconscious, intuitive, emotional and metacognitive processes in thinking and the importance of probabilistic conceptualisations of thinking and reasoning. In addition, authors examine the importance of neuroscientific findings in informing theoretical developments, as well as the situated nature of thinking and reasoning across a range of real-world contexts such as mathematics, medicine and science.
The handbook provides a clear sense of the way in which contemporary ideas are challenging traditional viewpoints in what is now referred to as the "new paradigm psychology of reasoning". This paradigm-shifting research is paving the way toward a far richer and more encompassing understanding of the nature of thinking and reasoning, where important new questions drive a forward-looking research agenda. It is essential reading for both established researchers in the field of thinking and reasoning as well as advanced students wishing to learn more about both the historical foundations and the very latest developments in this rapidly growing area of enquiry.
