Reviews

  • 'Filled with lively stories and vivid examples (involving ants, monsters, mosquitoes and dust bunnies, as well as paltry humans) ... its central thesis is sharp and convincing ... the argumentative theory of reason makes sense of human irrationality.

    Times Literary Supplement
  • Elegant and compelling ... Mercier and Sperber delight in turning conventional wisdom on its head ... A timely and necessary book

    Financial Times
  • Timely ... an antidote to the dual-process models behind Kahneman's famous Thinking, Fast and Slow. We need a faith in reason, and this book provides strong arguments that such faith is reasonable

    Times Higher Education
  • Reason is more likely to confirm things that we want to be true, or which we already believe. So why does it exist? This new book provides the answer
