The psychological study of human reasoning is responsible for the conceptual evolution of this notion. Initially linked to the solution of standard logic tasks, later developments associated it with performance in the social environment, where individuals face problems with personal relevance. Along with the empirical results and theories proposed about reasoning, certain considerations have arisen around the topic of human rationality. As a part of the previous philosophical tradition, the concept of rationality has specific implications for the conception of both human being and nature. The revision of some psychological approaches that appeared during the 20th century enables us to clarify the reformulation of the concept of reasoning and gives us some clues about its relationship with the notion of rationality
