Thinking and Deciding has established itself as a required text and important reference work for students and scholars of human judgments, decisions, and rationality. In this, the third edition, Jonathan Baron delves further into many of the key questions addressed in the previous editions. For example, how should we think? What, if anything, keeps us from thinking that way? How can we improve our thinking and decision making? Baron has also revised or expanded his treatment of topics such as risk, utilitarianism, Bayes's theorem, utility measurement, decision analysis and values.
JONATHAN Baron is Professor of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. He is the author of Morality and Rational Choice and Judgment Misguided and the editor of Teaching Decision Making to Adolescents and Psychological Perspectives on Justice (with Barbara Mellers).
