Bias in human reasoning: Causes and consequences. Essays in cognitive psychology. Jonathan St. B. This chapter examines a cognitive bias that the author feels can explain apparent departures from rationality in hypothesis testing, causal reasoning, judgments of covariation, control judgments, and judgments under uncertainty-namely confirmation bias. The particular form of this bias with which the author's analysis is concerned is the confirmatory strategy of hypothesis testing whereby the.

Jonathan Evans has succeeded. to. present an excellent overview of the problem of bias in human reasoning in the mere space of 145 pages. All the relevant material is covered, and Evans finds the necessary space as well. Deductive reasoning as well as statistical and probabilistic rea-soning is dealt with. Thus, chapter 2 treats Selective Processing, chapter 3 deals with Confirmation Bias, chapter 4 covers Effects of Content and Context, and chapter 5 is on the problem of Self-kno-v. Finally, in a last chapter, Implications and Ap-plications, Evans formulates some ideas and opinions about the prospect and possibility of debiasing.

One source of error discussed by Jonathan Evans is known as ‘the availability heuristic’. As a final example, the number of American tourists in Europe dropped sharply in the summer of 1986 because of some much publicised aeroplane hijackings. If asked: ‘Are there more words beginning with ‘k’ than words having ‘k’ as the third letter?’, most people incorrectly reply ‘Yes’.

Throughout the history of the Psychology of reasoning, one of the experimental tasks most frequently used to study how subjects reason, and why they make mistakes, is the Wason’s selection task or the four card problem (Wason, 1966, 1968).

This book represents the first major attempt by any author to provide an integrated account of the evidence for bias in human reasoning across a wide range of disparate psychological literatures. The topics discussed involve both deductive and inductive reasoning as well as statistical judgement and inference. In addition, the author proposes a general theoretical approach to the explanation of bias and considers the practical implications for real world decision making.The theoretical stance of the book is based on a distinction between preconscious heuristic processes which determine the mental representation of (subjectively) 'relevant' features of the problem content, and subsequent analytic reasoning processes which generate inferences and judgements. The author is neutral on the question of the mechanism of analytic reasoning, although some discussion of the major theoretical positions in the literature is included. The major focus, however, is upon the preconscious heuristics which are claimed to be the major cause of bias either by directing attention towards logically irrelevant information or away from relevant problem features.Phenomena discussed and interpreted within this framework include feature matching biases in propositional reasoning, confirmation bias, biasing and debiasing effects of knowledge on reasoning, and biases in statistical judgement normally attributed to 'availability' and 'representativeness' heuristics. In addition, an entire chapter is devoted to the topic of self-knowledge in thinking and reasoning. It is contended that biases of unconscious origin defy detection because people lack insight into their own thought processes and are chronically prone to rationalisation and overconfidence.In the final chapter, the practical consequences of bias for real life decision making are considered, together with various issues concerning the problem of 'debiasing'. The major approaches discussed are those involving education and training on the one hand, and the development of intelligent software and interactive decision aids on the other.
