|There are overriding reasons to regard minds as consistent|
Hutton's argument for the inconsistency of mind is flawed (see detailed text).
- Hutton's probabilistic model of the mind is unrealistic. It holds that we accept or reject propositions independently of each other. This is not so.
- An inconsistent model of the mind would affirm every proposition, but no mind would do that.
- We must assume that we are consistent reasoners to be able to start reasoning at all.
John Lucas (1976).
