GARCIA-CAMPOS, Jonatan. Justification and Rationality from the Perspective of the Dual System Theory of Reasoning. Ideas y Valores [online]. 2009, vol.58, n.139, pp. 61-86. ISSN 0120-0062.
A common assumption in epistemology is that there is an important connection between the notions of justification and rationality. However, this connection is unclear since there is no consensus about what rationality is or what a "correct" notion of justification would be. The purpose of this paper is to explain how the dual system theory of reasoning can build a "bridge" between justification and rationality. We argue that the dual system theory of reasoning supports, to a certain extent, an externalist notion of justification and a consequentialist view of rationality.
Keywords : internalism; externalism; rationality; dual system theory of reasoning.
