IIII IIII II Father Edwin Daschbach, SVD "Reason" and the Non-Rewarding of Achievers • In last week's article, I questioned the recent Tennessee directive that achievers in school shouldn't be rec- ognized because the practice embar- rasses non-achievers. Lawyers he- hind the directive argue that the honor roll listing of students violates a 1970's state privacy law. I'm not a lawyer, so I don't understand all the ins and outs here. But I sense that a problem in the whole question is that the legal application of something doesn't necessarily always jive with "Reason" as prop- erly understood. I'll try to explain, bor- rowing material from two Boston College Philosophy professors and authors. In their Handbook of Chris- tian Apologetics (1994), Peter Kreeft and Ronald Tacelli try to steer us from limiting reason to reasoning and cal- culating. They instead put forth an older and larger notion of "Reason:" the processes of apprehension, intel- lectual intuition, understanding, "see- ing," insight, contemplation• Using that description, let me go on my own here and try to apply it to the'qtiestion of the Tennessee direc- tive at hand. We are mqre than computers. We have "insights," "perceptions" that go far beyond the robotic applica- tion of input. We sense that, for example, things are not right some- times without putting a finger on it. We have insights that are objectively very valid that are more than logical reasoning. Lawyers applying the Tennessee law to school honor roll listings are, arguably, acting in a logical fashion, but is their action truly according to "Reason?"- or more precisely, Right Reason? Does it "square" with intel- lectual intuition, with insight and "seeing" related to the issue at hand? I believe that it doesn't. And that's the rationale behind my taking issue with the action. There are ways of knowing be- yond the application of syllogistic logic. A mother can sense something about her child, often about danger he or she is in, even though not having direct information about it. Our intuition can present us with a way of knowing that was arrived at not by argumentation. I can know my parents so well that I would never question their faithfulness. Yet I can- not prove that they are faithful. I can just know that this is the right way to act because of the way I have over the years successfully formed a valid and insightful conscience.., which, in itself, is an act ofjudgmenL So, likewise, I see that though the lawyers are using a form of logic in their application to the Tennessee case, their action doesn't make sense. It doesn't square with reality as I know it. It causes harm, not good. I perceive ramifications of their ac- tion that indicate the action is erro- neous. Reason is what distinguishes us so forcefully from simple animals. Doesn't it make sense to be sure we have a clear idea of what it is? I DR.
