On Being Unreasonable
What is unreasonable? This is the deceptively simple question posed by Kirsty Sedgman is explored and dissected in this well-researched, thoroughly engaging and often humorous book. Through example after example, Sedgman take situations familiar to us all and highlights the often very arbitrary rules of society and questions what is deemed ‘reasonable’.
As children, we behave in a manner that is natural to us until we learn civility from the societal structures around us. A compulsive read, Sedgman argues in this book that these learned behaviours reinforce unjust power structures and encourages us to free ourselves from the shackles of reason and to behave ‘unreasonably’.
