    Debates within economic sociology also arise as to whether or not people or organizations are "really" rational, as well as whether it makes sense to model them as such in formal models. Links Awards This short book introduces the field of bounded rationality to a beginning readership in economics.

Aided by strong incontrovertible logic and scientific evidence, the Quran does not shy away from presenting itself to the merciless scrutiny of rationality. Rational irrationality describes a situation in which it is instrumentally rational for an actor to be epistemically irrational.

    Voters have a very small probability of influencing policy outcomes, so they do not put much effort to stay up-to-date on politics. When human intelligence defeats itself and goes off the rails, the fallout therefore tends to be a uniquely big deal. One of those interests is the human pursuit of truth, which has strengthened slowly over the generations for there was not always science. It begs for a readership outside academic and professional circles.
