How do people think? How should they think? Philosophers have been asking these questions for thousands of years and, in recent centuries, psychologists joined the discussion. Many of these thinkers argue that people should think logically and have documented flaws in human reasoning. Cognitive scientists Hugo Mercier and Dan Sperber take an original position that regards human reasoning – with all its flaws – in a new light.
