Rationality + Irrationality? City Centre group (Liverpool) Paul D 01/02/2021 13:30
Philosophers from Plato to Rene Descartes have assumed that the human psyche contains a non-rational element that either is impervious to reason, and therefore irrational, or can be educated by reason and made rational. But Blaise Pascal argues that there may be rationality in irrationality: “The heart has its reasons which reason cannot know”. Some philosophers, including Friedrich Nietzsche, defend the importance of irrationality in our lives, but in surprisingly rational ways.
