The Failure of Reason?

Has rationality failed us?

If the values of Enlightenment are under threat, so it the belief in reason that underpinned them. Has rationality failed us, and with it the potential for us to uncover the truth? Professor of Philosophy at Cambridge Simon Blackburn, sociologist Steve Fuller, and postmodern philosopher Hilary Lawson attempt to apply reason to the end of reason.
