Sunday Quotes: Ruled By Reason

Lately I’ve been studying the Enlightenment and some of the effects its had on our modern perceptions of religion particularly through the lens of post-modernity (read: self-reflection). This has led me to ponder the following statement from someone I relate to on more than one level:

“If we admit that human life can be ruled by reason, the possibility of life is destroyed.”

-Chris McCandless; from Jon Krakauer’s Into the Wild

Annnnnnddddd that’s all for today. Toodles.
