Archaeology of Criticism



"Reason operates in contemporary life under such heavy unconscious conditioning from science that it might be good for us if at certain times, for certain purposes, we had a Western equivalent of the Zen koan to decommission reason, to simply knock it out, allay it, so it wouldn't get in our way." [Huston Smith, "The Reach and the Grasp: Transcendence Today," in Herbert W. Richardson & Donald R. Cutler (eds.), Transcendence 1-17, at __ (Boston: Beacon Press, 1969)]
