A primary aim of this workshop is to renew and sustain exemplary critical interdisciplinary discussion about the foundations and methodology of research programs on bounded and adaptive decision making, inference, and belief, broadly construed. Speakers at the workshop shall deliver lectures on approved paper proposals for an eponymous special issue of Minds and Machines. The workshop, which takes place prior to the submission deadline or full papers, shall serve to promote critical discussion and first-class work. Following each lecture, two workshop participants shall deliver critical comments about the speaker's paper proposal in an effort to elucidate and to help the speaker improve aspects of his or her proposed project. Each session shall include a talk, commentary, and public discussion. The workshop shall offer a stimulating environment for valuable interdisciplinary discussion among philosophers and social scientists on the nature of human rationality.

Funding for the workshop has been provided by the German Research Foundation and the Max Planck Institute for Human Development.
