Thinking begins only when we have come to know that reason, glorified for centuries, is the stiff-necked adversary of thought.

What's Your Reason for Saying Such a Thing?

Interchanging Reason with reason is a circular proposition and a justification of sorts. According to Heidegger, the act of asking questions is futile simply because our reason centre is where the questions originate. As language animals we tend to overcompensate taking the value of reason too far yet this does not negate three things; (1), that some people are better at reasoning than other and we can only validate this claims with other people that are good at reasoning, (2), instinct and passions play out to our revolutionary (and evolutionary) disadvantage.
