Science, a Rational Enterprise?
Our main concern has been to deal with various aspects of the concept of rationality. Specifically, the rationality of some scientific activities has been questioned, among them the case where doxastic attitudes are chosen, or where weights are assigned to experts in a group which aims at a consensus on some scientific question, or even where the guiding principles necessary for calling an activity ‘scientific’ are being adopted. More generally, we asked for criteria of rationality with reference to human behavior in verbal or non-verbal interactions or to human actions (i.e. intentional behavior) in general.
