Atul, sorry in advance for attacking all of your quotes :) - There CAN be madness in reason because people justify madness through reason? "Oh, raping young children is a sickness" - "I was temporarily insane when I killed my wife" - and all of the other excuses we hear when people have gone mad. Thus, There can be madness in reason - reason justifying madness...


What you mention is reason to justify madness after the fact. I would argue that using reason before the fact (or the act) prevents madness in most cases. But I have thought about it some more and realized that too much reason, taken to extreme, can lead to madness. A person who is a germophobe may become so obsessed with not catching illness that she/he will not live a normal life and will not interact with others, (like Howard Hughes).
