Distinguishing the reflective algorithmic and autonomous minds

Abstract

In a recent book (Stanovich, 2004), I spent a considerable effort trying to work out the implications of dual process theory for the great rationality debate in cognitive science (see Cohen, 1981; Gigerenzer, 1996; Kahneman and Tversky, 1996; Stanovich, 1999; Stein, 1996). In this chapter, I wish to advance that discussion, first by discussing additions and complications to dual-process theory and then by working through the implications of these ideas for our view of human rationality.
