depends on your definition of rationality
>The only definition of rationality that I found that is practically, empirically, and mathematically rigorous is that of survival –and indeed, unlike the modern theories by psychosophasters, it maps to the classics. Anything that hinders one’s survival at an individual, collective, tribal, or general level is deemed irrational.

the best and most solid philosophy over the ages was conceived and assembled by doers, often with quantitative background and real-world experience, not by virgin theorists closed in ivory towers
you are overstating the impact of pure humanities venture and understating the potential your background gave you in having strong analytical mind to filter out quickly mountains of bullshit pseudointelectual philosophy/lit from the ones containing timeless merit in wisdom.

taleb: antifragile (everything from him, basically) and kahneman:thinking fast and slow.
You will find plenty of good aditional sources referenced in Antifragile

you will fuck up your head and perception of probability, randomness and ignore the signifficance of fundamentally unpredictable rare events (black swans).
events and matters of importance in real world are very rarely normally distributed (in a gauss distribution) we live in extremistan, not mediocristan
read instead The Black Swan from Nassim Nicholas Taleb
