Prerationality vs. transrationality
added by admin
Prerationality includes all of the modes leading up to rationality (such as sensation, vital life feeling, bodily emotion, and organic sentiment), and, by its very nature, tends to exclude rationality, no matter what lip service it might give to it. Transrationality, on the other hand, lies on the other side of reason. Once reason has emerged and consolidated, consciousness can continue to grow and develop and evolve, moving into transrational, transpersonal, and supraindividual modes of awareness. Transrationality, unlike prerationality, happily incorporates the rational perspective, and then adds its own defining characteristics; it is thus never antireason, but, in a friendly way, transreason.
