Definition Top
  1. (anagram) senora
  2. reasons: cause, basis for action; intelligence, sense
  3. reasons, reasoned, reasoning: think, consider logically; support a claim with reasons, justify by giving reasons; argue, claim
  4. in philosophy, the faculty or process of drawing logical inferences. The term reason is also used in several other, narrower senses. Reason is in opposition to sensation, perception, feeling, desire, as the faculty (the existence of which is denied by empiricists) by which fundamental truths are intuitively apprehended. These fundamental truths are the causes or reasons of all derivative facts. According to the German philosopher Immanuel Kant, reason is the power of synthesizing into unity, by means of comprehensive principles, the concepts that are provided by the intellect. That reason which gives a priori principles Kant calls pure reason, as distinguished from the practical reason, which is specially concerned with the performance of actions. In formal logic the drawing of inferences (frequently called ratiocination, from Latin ratiocinari, to use the reasoning faculty) is classified from Aristotle on as deductive (from generals to particulars) and inductive (from particulars to generals). In theology, reason, as distinguished from faith, is the human intelligence exercised upon religious truth whether by way of discovery or by way of explanation. The limits within which the reason may be used have been laid down differently in different churches and periods of thought: on the whole, modern Christianity, especially in the Protestant churches, tends to allow to reason a wide field, reserving, however, as the sphere of faith the ultimate (supernatural) truths of theology.
  5. (J U D G M E N T) (n) the ability of a healthy mind to think and make judgments, esp. based on practical facts We humans assert that we are the only animals to have the power of reason. (esp. UK dated) He lost his reason (= became mentally ill) when both his parents were killed in the crash. What is within reason is what is practical or acceptable. You can choose you own gift, within reason. If what someone says or does is/goes beyond all reason, it is unacceptable. The awful things she said went beyond all reason. To listen to/see reason is to listen to good advice and act according to it. Friends tried to persuade them to change their minds but neither man would listen to reason.
  6. (Kantian term) in the first Critique, the highest faculty of the human subject, to which all other faculties are subordinated. It abstracts completely from the conditions of sensibility. The second Critique examines the form of our desires in order to construct a system based on the faculty of reason (= the practical standpoint). Reason's primary function is practical; its theoretical function, though often believed to be more important, should be viewed as having a secondary importance. (Cf. judgment.)
