The critical thinker's dictionary : biases, fallacies, and illusions and what you can do about them by Robert Todd Carroll( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"'Know Thyself' advised the ancient Greek sages at a time when philosophers defined us as rational animals. Rationality was thought of as an ideal largely achievable by controlling the emotions and avoiding logical fallacies. Today, we know better. Biology and neuroscience have exposed the brain as a great deceiver. Unconscious biases drive us to believe and do things that the conscious mind explains in self-serving stories, making us appear more tational to ourselves than we really are. Modern science has taught us that rationality involves much more than just controlling the emotions and avoiding fallacies. Today's rational animal--what we call the critical thinker-- must understand the unconscious biases that are directing many of our most important judgments and decisions. The Critical thinker's dictionary explore the insights of ancient and modern philosophers along with the latest findings in such fields as neuroscience and behavioral economics to lay out the many obstacles and snare that await anyone committed to a rational life."--Back cover
