The Sense Of Antirationalismby Karen L. Carr, Philip J. Ivanhoe
This book is a collaborative, comaprative study of the relgious thought of Zhuangzi, a fourth century B.C.E. Chinese Daoist, and Søren Kierkegaard, a nineteenth century Danish Christian. After offering a sense of the historical and intellectual contexts of each thinker, we argue that they develop distinct but related conceptions of a view we call anti-rationalism. We show how antirationalism characterizes their respective philosophies, helps us make sense of important aspects of their thought, and addresses issues that continue to fascinate reflective individuals today.
