Reason Does Not Imply Rationality

Reason does not imply rationality—this is because reason is a natural and inevitable activity in a human being, like breathing and digesting. Every choice that a man makes, rational or irrational, intelligent or stupid, mystic or scientific, is executed through reason. The idea that the use of reason is the prerogative of the rational and intelligent beings is a myth that got developed in the 18th century through the work of some philosophers who used the term “reason” to create the impression that their own thinking was rational and scientific.
