"If there is any doubt that the field of thinking and reasoning is central to current psychological science, this Handbook should dispel those doubts. I can’t imagine a young scholar in cognitive science who wouldn’t find something of interest in this set of up-to-date empirical and theoretical chapters."-- Keith E. Stanovich, University of Toronto, author of The Rationality Quotient


"This book offers authoritative overviews of every major topic in reasoning research, written by leading scholars from around the world. Its 35 chapters capture the field’s history as well as its exciting cutting edge developments, making this Handbook a valuable resource for years to come."-- Norbert Schwarz, University of Southern California


"The collection of chapters brilliantly demonstrates that the field of thinking and reasoning has attained full maturity. The remarkable diversity in the theoretical approaches and the topics selected make open-mindedness and wideness of scope two hallmarks of this handbook. While the classical fundamental questions are considered, essential new developments that have emerged in the last two decades are widely treated. Also, the specific consideration of factors that affect reasoning such as emotion and culture, development, and a few applied research topics such as mathematical learning and argumentation contribute to the attractiveness of this handbook." --Guy Politzer, Institut Jean Nicod, Paris


"The Routledge International Handbook of Thinking and Reasoning brings together an impressive collection of highly esteemed experts and represents a comprehensive review of the psychology of thought. While it may appeal most to academics working in the field, it also represents a useful resource for anyone interested in the characteristics of the human mind and the underlying cognitive processes that constitute our reasoning."-- Gordon Pennycook, Banting Postdoctoral Fellow, Yale University

Reseña del editor:

The Routledge International Handbook of Thinking and Reasoning is an authoritative reference work providing a balanced overview of current scholarship spanning the full breadth of the rapidly developing and expanding field of thinking and reasoning. It contains 35 chapters written by leading international researchers, covering foundational issues as well as state-of-the-art developments in thinking and reasoning research.

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 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. Authors also examine the importance of neuroscientific findings in informing theoretical developments, and explore 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 as "new paradigm of the psychology of reasoning" emerges. This paradigm-shifting research is paving the way toward a richer and more inclusive understanding 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 latest developments in this rapidly growing field.
