Reviews

'Filled with lively stories and vivid examples (involving ants, monsters, mosquitoes and dust bunnies, as well as paltry humans) ... its central thesis is sharp and convincing ... the argumentative theory of reason makes sense of human irrationality. * Times Literary Supplement *
Praise for Sperber and Mercier's work: Revolutionary * New York Times *
Fascinating and provocative -- Wired
Fascinating * Psychology Today *
