Russell, 1941

According to Bertrand Russell (1941), "There are very definite limits, to my mind, within which rationality should be confined; some of the most important departments of life are ruined by the invasion of reason ... I believe there is in each of us a certain energy which must find vent in actions not inspired by reason, but may find vent in art, in passionate love, or in passionate hate, according to circumstances. (pps. 11-12)"

Russell, B. Let the People Think: A Selection of Essays. London: Watts & Co., 1941.
