What Reason Promises
Essays on Reason, Nature and History
Ed. by Doniger, Wendy / Galison, Peter / Neiman, Susan
Aims and Scope
This collection demonstrates the range of approaches that some of the leading scholars of our day take to basic questions at the intersection of the natural and human worlds. The essays focus on three interlocking categories: Reason stakes a bigger territory than the enclosed yard of universal rules. Nature expands over a far larger region than an eternal category of the natural. And history refuses to be confined to claims of an unencumbered truth of how things happened.
