All the essays of this volume focus on the relation between economic rationality and practical reason and discuss different aspects of the same problem, i. a basic deficiency in the standard economic theory of practical rationality.
But philosophical analysis would not be of much help if it just rejected the economic paradigm. Economic rationality is a part of the taken-for-granted assumptions of how organizations are understood and studied. Organizations have economic purpose and intent; organizational structures, systems, and policies are designed to achieve goals or ends.
Ergo, organizations are rational. All this notwithstanding, there is an abundance Economic Rationality and Practical Reason book literature illustrating that organizations often follow Author: Barbara Townley.
This book aims at giving a clear account of the central characteristics and problems of the orthodox notion of consequentialist economic rationality and at showing how the formal core of classical decision theory can be defended against objections and incorporated into a coherentist notion of practical reason.

This will help readers discover a new perspective on the theory of rationality. Kant is famous for undertaking a critique of reason and for calling two of his most significant works critiques of reason. These titles raise suspicions. Kant's attempt to give an account of practical reason that offers unconditional reasons for action and provides the basis for a reasoned account of human duties is spectacularly ambitious; even if it fails in some ways it is worth the closest.
An unconditional practical reason is one that can be seen to be a reason for action by any rational audience; its appeal relies on no parochial concerns. Such universal appeal is captured by the categorical imperative test (O'Neill examines in detail three of the formulations of this): only principles of action that pass this test can be.

from PART I - AUTHORITY IN REASONING Onora O'Neill Kant's attempt to give an account of practical reason that offers unconditional reasons for action and provides the basis for a reasoned account of human duties is spectacularly ambitious: even if it fails in some ways it is worth the closest.
Julian Nida-Rümmelin: Economic Rationality and Practical Reason. Theory and Decision Library, Series A, Vol. 24, Dordrecht: Kluwer,pp. ISBNDfl. The main thesis of this book is that the economic conception of rationality does not necessarily imply or presuppose consequentialism.
Utility functions can be constructed out of preferences concerning. The first embedded mode of reasoning to be examined is institutional rationality. Its significance lies in its critique of a universalistic concept of rationality.
Interrogating the fiction of the disembedded individual, it recognizes that ‘the rational individual is, and must be, an organized and institutionalized individual’. An institutional rationality acknowledges that there are.

7), David McNaughton and Piers Rawling present a view on which practical reasons are facts, such as the fact that the rubbish bin is full. This is a non-normative fact, but it is a reason for you to do something, namely take the rubbish out. Reason, in philosophy, the faculty or process of drawing logical term “reason” is also used in several other, narrower senses.
Reason is in opposition to sensation, perception, feeling, desire, as the faculty (the existence of which is denied by empiricists) by which fundamental truths are intuitively fundamental truths are the causes or “reasons” of. Rationality is the quality or state of being rational – that is, being based on or agreeable to reason.
Rationality implies the conformity of one's beliefs with one's reasons to believe, and of one's actions with one's reasons for action. "Rationality" has different specialized meanings in philosophy, economics, sociology, psychology, evolutionary biology, game theory and political science.
This chapter considers the early work on bureaucracy before examining the foundations of a bureaucratic rationality. It strongly distinguishes between the bureaucratic form and a bureaucratic rationality that underpins it.
Bureaucratic rationality is identified as domination through knowledge, or that which allows things to be known. It is the mundane, seemingly insignificant acts of semantics.
There are, broadly speaking, two ways to think about rationality, as defined in the following passage: ‘Reason’ for a long time meant the activity of understanding and assimilating the eternal ideas which were to function as goals for men.
The common understanding of economic rationality is fundamentally flawed, he says. It assumes that rational players are always self-interested and make decisions on the basis of consequences.
Young maintains that a successful prescriptive theory of rationality must start from a different premise.The domain of rationality is customarily divided into the theoretical (see Robert Audi's chap. 2) and the practical. Whereas theoretical or epistemic rationality is concerned with what it is rational to believe, and sometimes with rational degrees of belief, practical rationality is concerned with what it is rational to do, or intend or desire to do.
This volume addresses the subject of uncertainty from the point of view of an extended conception of rationality. In particular, the contributions explore the premises and implications of plausible reasoning when probabilities are non-measurable or unknown, and when the space of possible events is only partially identified.
