email: benoithv@gmail.com

This seminar is about the nature and naturalization of practical rationality. From Adam Smith to decision neuroscience, we will explore how philosophy and sciences study and describe decision-making, mainly from a naturalistic perspective. Economical models of rationality (traditional and non-traditional) will be presented and discussed from a psychological, biological and philosophical perspective. This course aims at discussing theoretical issues related to philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, cognitive science, economics and neuroscience.
