Philosophy 12A Lecture #7 2/9/10 If Yossarian flies his missions then he is putting himself in danger, and  it is irrational to put oneself in danger (general claim) . If Yossarian is rational he will ask to be grounded, and he will be grounded only if he asks.  But only irrational people are grounded and a request to be grounded is proof of rationality . Consequently, Yossarian will fly his missions whether he is rational or irrational.
