"Arne Naess between Reason and Emotion." (This paper was the basis for lectures held at the Universities of Prague, Vienna and Belgrade, May 2003)

Abstract

I try to convince the reader that we all too often consider our decisions more or less unreasonable – and due to emotions overpowering reason. The dualism: reason/emotion may be dangerously misleading. Psychoanalysis may be said to have been the first systematic effort to help us find the real reasons for our important decisions and views. Personal maturity involves both strength of emotions and clearness of thinking.
