In our cultural moment, society’s disregard of qualitative reasoning in favor of quantitative analysis–what spiritual master Rene Guenon dubbed “The Reign of Quantity”–has left a gaping hole in issues relating to morality, spirituality, and meaning. In this episode, Rabbi Gottlieb discusses questions such as: What is reason in the 21st century? Do the worlds of philosophical reasoning and empirical analysis speak different languages?

Rabbi Mark Gottlieb is Senior Director of the Tikvah Fund and Founding Dean of the Tikvah High School Programs at Yale University.
