  5. Thinking and Reasoning

    Drawing upon research originally cited in Ken Manktelow’s highly successful Reasoning and Thinking (1999), this textbook reflects the revolutionary changes that have occurred in the field in recent years – changes stemming from the huge expansion in research output as well as new methods and explanations.

    The main areas covered are probability judgment, deductive and inductive reasoning, decision making, hypothetical thinking and rationality.

    In each case, the material is almost entirely new, with topics such as the new paradigm in reasoning research, causal reasoning and counterfactual thinking appearing for the first time. The book also presents an extended treatment of decision making research, and contains a chapter on individual and cultural influences on thinking.
