"The research activities of this group led to the group Quantitative Modelling in the Social Sciences: Theory, history and applications"

Research key-phrases:
reasoning under uncertainty, non classical logics, rationality decision making, rational interaction.

The Logical Foundations of Rational Interaction Group was formed in January 2009 as a joint effort between the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, the University of Florence and the University of Siena. It is an interdisciplinary research group whose members specialize in various areas of logic, mathematics and philosophy.

Research goals:
The goal of our group is best described as the attempt to couple the logico-mathematical characterization of rational reasoning under uncertainty with a careful study of its philosophical and methodological underpinnings. This two-fold focus constitutes, in our view, the most appropriate strategy to tackle the highly complex task of understanding rational decision-making and interaction.

Our research is partly funded by the Fondazione Monte dei Paschi di Siena.
