About the Author

Ronald de Sousa is Professor of Philosophy, Emeritus at the University of Toronto. He is the author of Emotional Truth.


This book is a tour de force of scholarly insights on one of the most subtle puzzles in cognitive science-the relation between rationality and evolution. * Keith E. Stanovich, author of The Robot's Rebellion: Finding Meaning in the Age of Darwin * Why Think? is Ronnie de Sousa at his brilliant best- immensely learned, witty, bold, and a model of clarity. This book is a timely balance to the weight of data emphasizing the emotions and nonconscious processing in decision-making. It weaves coherent story out of a lot of bits and pieces lying about in loose confusion. * Patricia Smith Churchland, President's Professor of Philosophy, University of California, San Diego *
