Rationality’s Confrontation with Irrationality-A Philosophical Thought About Tender Is the Night

  •  Lingmin Zhou    


F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Tender Is the Night vividly presents us a picture of western world in 1917-1930. In the book, Dick’s fall, incestuous behaviors and war’s effects on people all show that western world is occupied by irrationality and rationality is confronted with irrationality. This phenomenon arouses us to rethink about western civilization, even human nature and hurries us to best ourselves.
