Eugene Halton argues that both modernism and postmodernism are damaged philosophies whose acceptance of the myths of the mind/body dichotomy make them incapable of solving our social dilemmas, Claiming that human nature should be understood as more than simply a form of knowledge, social construction, or contingent difference, Halton argues that contemporary thought has lost touch with the spontaneous passions of life. He explores works by authors including Maya Angelou, Lewis Mumford. Milan Kundera, and Doris Lessing, and offers an outline to frame our questions in a way that encompasses both enchantment and critical reason.

Bereft of Reason is a passionate plea for a fundamental reexamination of the entrenched assumptions of the modern era. Dealing with issues of vital concern to modern societies, it should be read by scholars across disciplines.
