Extreme rationality is itself irrational

| Meaning of life | 0 Comments

Taken from the blog article: Beware of Extreme Rationality.

"All of us are irrational at times. Sometimes a lot of us become irrational together and this leads to extreme group behavior. What would be nice to see is a contagion of rationality. But it has to be rationality tempered by empathy and compassion. Otherwise, even rationality can cause extreme negative behavior. Extreme rationality is itself irrational."
