An irrationalist is someone who tries to convince you (usually through some supposedly rational argument) that you should not be convinced by rational argument (!), but rather through some inexplicable or mystical means such as INTUITION.

We have our philosophical persons,
to make modern and familiar,
things supernatural and causeless.
    —William Shakespeare, "All's
    Well That Ends Well", II, iii.
