Collective Rationality and Collective Reasoning

by Christopher Mcmahon

Condition: See description

Cambridge University Press, 2001. First edition. Softcover. New. This book examines the issue of rational cooperation, especially cooperation between people with conflicting moral commitments. Can such cooperation - the choice made by a group and the decision by each member to contribute to that choice - be understood as guided by reason? Can the activity of reasoning itself take a cooperative form? The book is distinctive in offering an account of what people can accomplish by reasoning together, of the role of deliberation in democratic decision making, and of the negotiation of the proper use of concepts. Contents 1. The reason to contribute 2. Cooperative structures 3. States and governments 4. Democracy 5. Collective reasoning 6. Overcoming malfunction 7. Reasoning to agreement 8. The rationality of collective reasoning. Printed Pages: 262.

Man-Eaters of Kumaon, The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag, and The Temple Tiger and More Man-Eaters of Kumaon, the three classic collections of Corbett's hunting stories, which vividly bring to life the drama and beauty of the jungle and its wildlife are here brought together in a single volume for the first time.
