Loves Me, Loves Me Not...

Abstract

No matter how we define rationality, human thinking does not employ completely rational means in going about its business. Man does not even solve with pure logic those problems for which logic would be a perfectly suitable and very effective method. I demonstrated quite a few examples of this in my book Ways of Thinking. Yet we are sometimes able to carry out logical, syllogistic reasoning, and despite our fundamentally illogical nature, we arrive at correct solutions. The duality of rational and nonrational thinking is a great mystery in the psychology of human thought.
