What I consider to be “rationality” is more subjective; it’s not something that can be assessed quite so objectively. It’s teleological. On my view, the relevant sort of “rationality” that humans have is simply the ability to make goals, plans, purposes, ends – in short, reasons for action(s). When a purpose or end becomes an all-encompassing one, then the subject who makes and maintains such purposes or ends is considered to have a “soul.” And for me, this simply is what rationality is; nothing more, nothing less.
