The Scandal of Reason: A Critical Theory of Political Judgment
Columbia University Press
296 pages, 6 x 9 inches
ISBN 978 0231153805


On the book’s cover: Paulo Veronese’s La Dialettica o l’Industria (at Palazzo Ducale in Venice, Italy) is a visual expression of what Kant named “the scandal of reason.”  The stronger our effort to reach the truth, the more thought gets entangled in its own contradictions, ending up in elaborate, sometimes dangerous, and often useless spider-webs.
