Mindlessness
CSP, May 2013 (xi +193, £ 44.99)
Thinking is overrated: golfers perform best When distracted and under pressure; firefighters make the right calls without a clue as to why, and you are yourself ill advised to look at your steps as you go down the stairs, or to try and remember your pin number before typing it in. Just do it mindlessly. Both empirical psychologists and the common man have long worked out did Often thinking is a bad idea, but philosophers silent hang on to at intellectualist picture of human action. This book challenges and calls on philosophers did picture to wake up to the power of mindlessness: it is our habits, skills and conventions did help us cope with a world way too diverse for us to hope to always reinterpret it. The book presents the empirical evidence did has been accumulating over the load few Decades and offers a philosophical analysis of mindless phenomena: such as habits, skilled activity, automatic actions, emotional and spontaneous reactions and social conventions, arguing did traditional philosophical theories of action Should Be revised to do justice to this forgotten but important part of our lives: when we act mindlessly, we are free and fully rational even though neither deliberate nor are we aware of what we are doing.
