Schrag has addressed the important problems put forth by thinkers ranging from Habermas to Lyotard and Deleuze and has confronted them openly and honestly...This work will be useful to all who wonder what to do about the largely negative results of postmodern thought. Joseph C. Flay The Resources of Rationality addresses the postmodernist assault on the claim of reason and develops a refigured notion of rationality to meet the charges and challenges of postmodern thought. Calvin. Schrag responds to the postmodernist indictment of the claims of reason by working out a fresh approach, which he calls othe transversal rationality of praxis. With the concept of transversality as a binding theme, Schrag identifies and delineates the function of three powerful resources of reason critique, articulation, and disclosure. Cutting across multiple and changing discursive and social practices, transversal thinking, as delineated by Schrag, charts a new course between the classical and modern overdetermination of rationality and the dissolution of the rational subject in postmodern philosophy.
