9780521586818: Trust within Reason

Does trust grow fragile when people are too rational or when they are not rational enough? Both thoughts are plausible. Which is right depends on how we define "reason." Martin Hollis' elegant and distinctive study argues for an interpretation of "reason" as putting the common good before one's own. This offers a universal reciprocity to people who then choose what reason shall mean for them.

Book Description:

Does trust grow fragile when people are too rational or when they are not rational enough? Both thoughts are plausible. The first upholds local values against reason. The second argues that rational people can trust and be trusted. Which is right turns on how we define 'reason'. Martin Hollis argues for an interpretation of 'reason' as putting the common good before one's own. This offers a universal reciprocity to people who then choose what reason shall mean for them.

Review:

"[this] book provides a wonderfully clear and entertaining exposition of variants of [the] theme [of] The Prisoner's Dilemma." Judith Baker, Ethics

"Hollis has produced an energetic and interesting book." Mark Owen Webb, Philosophy in Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Some philosophers hold that trust grows fragile when people become too rational. They advocate a retreat from reason and a return to local, traditional values. Others hold that truly rational people are both trusting and trustworthy. Everything hinges on what we mean by reason and rational . If these are understood in an egocentric, instrumental fashion, then they are indeed incompatible with trust. With the help of game theory, Martin Hollis argues against that narrow definition and in favour of a richer, deeper notion of reason founded on reciprocity and the pursuit of the common good. Within that framework he reconstructs the Enlightenment idea of citizens of the world, rationally encountering, and at the same time finding their identity in, their multiple commitments to communities both local and universal.
