About this title

Synopsis:

How should we think? What, if anything, keeps us from thinking that way? And how can we improve our thinking and decision making? The primary focus of Jonathan Baron's text is on the second question, but he considers all three in this lively three-part introduction to current research and theory. Part I offers a broad overview of thinking, including its role in problem solving and its relation to learning, intelligence, creativity, and logic. Part II deals with the formation of beliefs and the making of judgments. Part III concerns decisions, morality, intertemporal choice, and the choice of goals. In response to latest developments in decision making, Jonathan Baron has updated and expanded his important book, Thinking and Deciding and has also added a new chapter on fairness.

Book Description:

Thinking and Deciding has established itself as a required text and important reference work for students and scholars of human cognition and rationality. By emphasizing decision making, Baron has made Thinking and Deciding, Third Edition more relevant to researchers in applied fields while maintaining its appeal to graduate and undergraduate students.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
