Book excerpt: « One of the main goals of this book is to argue that [rationality] is a normative concept. (…) Roughly, it means that to think rationally is to think properly, or to think as one should think, in certain distinctive senses of ‘properly’ and ‘should’; rationality is a kind of virtue that agents display in the mental states (like the beliefs and intentions) that they have, and in the way in which they form and revise those mental states in response to reflection and experience. »
