    Given that Enlightenment rationality developed in Europe as European nations aggressively claimed other parts of the world for their own enrichment, scholars have made rationality the subject of postcolonial critique, questioning its universality and objectivity. In On Reason, the late philosopher Emmanuel Chukwudi Eze demonstrates that rationality, and by extension philosophy, need not be. The Age of Unreason is an inspiring vision of an era of new discoveries, new enlightenment and new freedoms.

That “the Great UnReason of ” is an apt moniker for this surreal phenomenon will be seen by the following considerations.
