Maarten van Doorn researches the relationship between digitization and human cognition. On the one hand, he focuses on empirical studies on, for example, how 'biased' our 'fallible thinking' is, the prevalence and influence of fake news and filter bubbles, and the effect of facts and cultural identities on opinion formation. And, on the other hand, he scrutinizes philosophical and normative assumptions implicit in psychological studies, models of rationality, and claims about which beliefs are and are not justified. He is currently working on the book We are rational.
