Description: Rationality, by its practice and structure, is alienated and alienating from the world that it purports to address, explain and describe. The rationale for such always arrives after a delay and is never contemporaneous with the originating experiences of the world. It is sometimes argued that rationality arises from a mythos that is in and of the world, and the gaze of reason can then thereby be understood as a mythos in practice. If this is the case, reason cannot make the claim to a universal, a-historical truth that it traditionally has. This claim to this kind of truth is itself a symptom of an estrangement from the world. The goals of this panel are to explore, in light of the phenomenological and hermeneutical traditions, the origins of this alienation, and the epistemic and ontological implications entailed by this alienating gaze of reason. We want to explore such questions as: What are the historico-philosophical foundations of this gaze? How does this alien(ating) gaze originate? In what ways does this praxis perpetuate or even extend alienation? What is the nature of instrumental reason’s objectification of experience? Papers that address these issues from philosophical, historical and scientific perspectives are welcome. Submissions should include an abstract and paper draft no longer than 3000 words (10 pages).
