The actual concern of the paper is a rather general one and is about the defining of the place of rationality in the world of mentality. It is motivated by the apparently simple question: what goes on in the organism when we think we act rationally? Opposite to the standard accounts in the philosophy of mind that start their analysis of mental states with ‘thoughts’, ‘beliefs’, ‘desires’, etc., I am interested in the status of the cognitive organism before it acts in a conscious and deliberative way, and knows of own beliefs, desires, etc. It will be shown that the conscious mind, of which rational thinking is a part, runs on automatic, unconscious processes over which the ‘self’ exercises little or no control. The support for the claim will be provided by the research in neuropsychology and neuroscience, made in the second half of the past century, of which philosophy remained largely ignorant.
