Rationality: An Essay Towards an Analysis

Front Cover
Hackett Publishing, 1989 - Philosophy - 123 pages

This stimulating work takes the concept of 'rationality', a concept that more than any other is supposed to express the essence of what it means to be human, and submits it to a careful and penetrating analysis. The conclusions drawn often challenge those previously suggested by both philosophers and psychologists.
