    Irrationality in the Middle East and Islām

    Atelier thématique – IIe congrès du GIS « Moyen-Orient et Mondes musulmans »

    If rationality denotes what complies with the mind, irrationality, by contrast, deals with all that, at first sight, can't be explained and controlled by the ʿaql. In other words, irrationality is a negatively defined notion marked by lack or loss (ʿadam-, ġayr-ou lā-ʿaql), distance (ibʿād)or deviation (inirāf) from the intellect, or even it is the result of reduced rationality (qillat al-ʿaql). An irrational behaviour is considered rather strange, abnormal, and sometimes contrary to sound norms and moral principals. Consequently, this is the case of liminal states or of more or less voluntary marginal conducts: the insane and the mental ill, the drunk or the intoxicated, the silly, the foolish, the madly in love with beloved or with God, etc.
