: Qx: Ah sophistry!!! Is what the old man said. With Reason on such a high pedestal even John Ralston Saul had to wonder why. If Reason could jump to conclusions it would only have to skip.

Have you read this book? (I havent). Could you summarise his criticism of reason/rationalism.

From the perspective of the words meanings being rational is saying "2+2=4" which is factually and observably the case - so is this book a childs' rebellion against reality or is it a more subtle criticism of what infact is irrationality and unreason?
