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.

Jonathan Baron is Professor of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. Baron's research is based on the utilitarian idea that society should be organized to do the most good (or to maximize utility). Some of his research examines people's intuitive principles for decision-making and moral judgement, and explores how these principles can stand in the way of doing the most good. Baron is the author of Rationality and Intelligence (1985); Thinking and Deciding (1988, 1994, 2000), a widely used textbook for advanced undergraduates and beyond; Morality and Rational Choice (1993), Judgement Misguided: Intuition and Error in Public Decision Making (1998); and Against Bioethics (2006). He has also co-edited three books and published over 175 papers and chapters. He is the editor of the journal Judgement and Decision Making, and he is currently president of the Society for Judgement and Decision Making. He holds a BA from Harvard and a PhD from Michigan and is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and of the American Psychological Society.
