Rationality is one of the most used concepts in social sciences. In this sense, each economic school gives legitimacy to its model with a certain definition of rationality, which reveals the difference behind the views: This difference stems from rationality. The reason why rationality is used in different meanings is that the decision-making skills, knowledge, uncertainty and balance conditions of the models in question vary. However, different views on rationality are not only seen in economics; from the moment rationality emerged, different views within the schools of philosophy form the basis for the current debate. In this sense, the aim of the study is to make a comparison for economic schools by recalling the emergence and development of this concept, which has such an ancient history and directs economic models. To achieve this goal, a literature review has been carried out.
