Abstract

Despite being the most rational animal on earth, human being is inherently irrational. His irrationality comes to the forefront, the moment he enters the vicious cycle of his libidinal desires. The human repressed immoral unconscious tries to submerge the moral conscience in an unending struggle. Thus, the more man progresses in the civilised world the more his uncivilised bestiality moves him to primitivity. Societal norms control the dark whims of his brain. The human brain is always in search of a vent to open up its darkness. Irrationality has been exercising control over the ‘collective unconscious’. The seething turmoil embedded in the dark recesses of the human brain takes the form of irrationality to present several pictures of inhumanity. The intricacies of the human psyche make man lose his power of reasoning. Even society itself imposes entanglements that make man extricate himself from a claustrophobia of existential crisis and absurdism. Loss of reason in man leads to a variegated emotional and psychological disposition in man – savagery, obsession, dormant bestiality, fear of death, loss of reason, hallucination, loss of logic, absurdity, killing of  innocence and outburst of angry young  man.This article focuses on the several exhibitions of irrationality that often give a very unfamiliar appearance of a familiar individual. Whether it is his psyche or the complexities of society and circumstance, whether it is his innate darkness or exterior invisibility, the logical human being transforms into the illogical stranger. The article also suggests that a constant balance between these two contrary aspects of the human mind can prevent this world from getting immersed into heart of darkness.

Keywords -Rationality, Irrationality, Human mind.
