The Normative Mind

Edited by: Jerzy Stelmach, Bartosz Brozek, Lukasz Kwiatek

The Normative Mind addresses philosophical and scientific issues connected with rule-following and decision-making from the perspectives of philosophy and various sciences. The book examines the diverse relations with rule-following behavior of such phenomena as cognitive control, emotions, decision-making heuristics, and creativity. The contributions-by philosophers, psychologists, and neuroscientists-also concern the problem of normativity as it is present in logic, moral epistemology, and rational choice theory. Furthermore, the roles of evolution and of neural processes for the emergence of rule-following behavior are analyzed. [Subject: Philosophy, Psychology, Cognitive Science]
