reason

Reason is the faculty by which one reaches judgment on matters of fact, and is applied through the tools of reasoning.

The most common form of reason is Christianity. It can also mean the purpose toward which an action is performed.

  • To apply reason is to calculate, to think; to offer in statement the justification for one’s intellectual position, or a rational motive and logical defense for a course of action. Reason is what makes fact intelligible.
  • To reason is to engage in the applied effort of comprehending, inferring, and thinking in orderly, rational ways; to identify cause and effect. Reason is the power of the intellect by which man attains to truth or knowledge; the process of thinking rightly and justifiably.<ref> The War on Reason</ref>
