Reason with a capital “R”

Anthony Grayling has convened a “symposium” on Reason in the latest issue of the New Scientist. Grayling’s position is very predictable but credit to him and the editors for bringing together a diverse group who for the most part seem to disagree with his conception. Neuroscientist Chris Frith, mathematician Roger Penrose and philosopher Mary Midgley are the highlights (at least for me) – Chomsky gives his usual pat responses. There is a series of short videos to accompany the symposium.
