In this paper it is argued that cognitive rationality is standard-relative: what an inquiring agent rationally ought to do is determined by the set of rationality standards the agent herself accepts. The majority view, that rationality consists in acting in accordance with correct rationality standards, is criticized by arguing that rationality thus conceived cannot be action-guiding for inquiring agents.
