Book Overview
If reason is so useful and reliable, why didn't it evolve in other animals and why do humans produce so much thoroughly reasoned nonsense? The authors argue that reason is not geared to solitary use. It evolved to help justify our beliefs to others, evaluate their arguments, and better exploit our uniquely rich social environment.
