In this translation of La Puissance du Rationnel (Editions Gallimard, 1985), Janicaud starts with a critical reflection upon the origins of the rational, combining a phenomenology of power with a genealogy of rationality to investigate the role of rationality in linking science and technology to power. His discussion encompasses Heidegger's critique of technology, as well as such thinkers as Weber, Habermas, and Adorno. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
