What if you’re not who you think you are?

What if you don’t really know the people closest to you?

And what if your most deeply-held beliefs turn out to be…wrong?


In Stop Being Reasonable, philosopher Eleanor Gordon-Smith tells gripping true stories that show the limits of human reason. Susie realises her husband harbours a terrible secret, Dylan leaves the cult he’s been raised in since birth, after impersonating someone else for a month on reality TV, Alex discovers he can no longer return to his former identity, all of them radically altering their beliefs about the things that matter most.

What makes them change course? What does this say about our own beliefs? And, in an increasingly divided world, what does it teach us about how we might change the minds of others?

Inspiring, perceptive and full of moving stories, Stop Being Reasonable is an illuminating exploration of the place where philosophy and real life meet.
