Sample text

It is successfully explained on the basis of faulty mechanisms underlying perception and predicted not via the intentional, but the physical stance. In cases of seemingly inconsistent or self-deceiving behaviour, Dennett suggests that interpreters cannot make clear, determinate attributions of beliefs and desires, and their predictions are going to be unstable too. Suppose Mary is self-deceived. She keeps telling herself that her son Jimmy did not rob the bank even though she has plenty of evidence that he did.

The analysis of the relationship between rationality (intended as the agent's satisfaction of the relevant epistemic standards) and success (intended as the fulfilment of goals that increase the agent's well-being) underlies all the debates presented in the book. Does irrationality necessarily lead to failure? I hope that the discussion will shed some light on the complex relationship between rationality and success, and highlight in which contexts they go hand in hand and in which contexts they conflict.

The following are common examples: When beliefs are badly supported by evidence and conflict with the science of the day. When reasoning fails to conform to reasoning standards shaped by basic principles of logic and probability. When decisions are driven by emotions or instinct rather than by deliberation. When intentions do not reflect beliefs and desires. When actions badly match intentions. When the appropriate means to achieving a goal are not selected. Although these are just a few cases in which judgements of irrationality are made, each case involves the infringement of a different set of norms.
