Abstract:

What are reason and rationality? How significant are recent postmodernist and neuroscientific challenges to these longheld notions? Should we abandon a belief in reason and an adherence to rationality? Or can reason and rationality be reformulated and reframed? And what does politics have to do with how we think about reason and why we act more or less rationally?The Politics of Rationality differs from other books with ""reason"" or "rationality" due to its historical, political, depth-psychological, and multidisciplinary approach to understanding reason through history.>
