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.
