Paul Troop

I research legal behaviour using cognitive science. I like to think of human behaviour as part of the natural world. I am therefore interested in the philosophy of cognitive science, the computational theory of mind, Herbert Simon’s notions of bounded rationality, and evolutionary psychology. Key questions that I am interested in are the relationship between the inferences people make and the reasons they give to explain those inferences, the relationship between scientific explanations of behaviour and blame, and how people integrate scientific theories of the world with more common sense theories of human behaviour.
