|Reason, philosophy: reason (German “Vernunft”, prudence) is the ability to get insight. The concept of reason in this sense is distinguished in the German Idealism from the concept of reason in the sense of “Verstand” (subtlety), whereby the latter refers to the recognition of regularities and differences and the former refers to the justification of principles which are the basis of the regularities. See also mind, spirit, idealism._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments. |

Reason/Feyerabend: the results welcomed by the tradition of reason were not created by the tradition of reason itself, but by research practice, under exclusion of reason! (At most, elements of reason, but not in pure form)._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
