That question is appropriate in a number of different contexts, political, social, ethical, and scienti c. But complicating all of these queries, the "sand in the machinery" of rational decision-making, are the emotions. It is often noted (but too rarely studied) that voters are swayed by their passions at least as much as they are convinced by rational arguments. And it is obvious to advertisers and retailers that people are seduced by all sorts of appeals to their vanities, their fears, their extravagant hopes, their insecurities.

At least one major thread of ethical discourse, the one following Kant, minimizes the importance of the emotions ("the inclinations") in favor of an emphatically rational decision-making process, and it is worth mulling over the fact that many of those who do not accept Kant's ethical views more or less applaud his rejection of the "moral sentiment theory" of the time, promoted by such luminary philosophers as David Hume and Adam Smith.
