Scientific organisation INTERNATIONAL RATIONALITY SUMMER INSTITUTE (IRSI)

Rationality is central to many disciplines, including philosophy, psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and economics. This may suggest that research in these fields should be conducted in close concert, but researchers in these disciplines unfortunately seldom have the chance to collaborate with and learn from one another. Philosophers theorize about what it means to be rational; psychologists empirically investigate whether people are rational; cognitive neuroscientists identify the neural correlates of rational thinking and decision-making; and economists develop mathematically precise models of rationality. The aim of the International Rationality Summer Institutes (IRSI) is to overcome this division between by providing an environment in which students can learn the state-of-the-art research on rationality in in each of these neighboring disciplines. The IRSI series is generously funded by the VolkswagenStiftung.
