Reason: traditional and contemporary, or Why should we still speak of reason at all?
MetadataShow full item record
Reason was once considered a higher order faculty than rationality. Beginning with Kant, rationality began to eclipse reason in significance. Today, we assume the existence of multiple rationalities, each with its own guiding principles. It is now time to resuscitate and redefine reason as a faculty that allows the individual to understand and live with the plurality of rationalities that characterize postmodern thought.
