Summary: In talking about ``doubtful rationality'' I try to move beyond the modern conception of mathematics. This conception includes three elements: the celebration of mathematics as being essential for understanding nature; the celebration of mathematics-based contributions to technological development; and the celebration of mathematics as a pure scientific enterprise. This article is a preface to the authors article in [ibid., 351--367 (2012; ME 2012e.00350)].
