Check here for the definition of this idiom.
I really like this one
I prefer to say it the way Shakespeare did: "Though this seems madness, yet there is method in't" (more blank stares though )
I have seen a slight variation to this one in the US -
There is method TO his madness ("to" instead of "in").
I'll add it to the definition.
"A method to his madness" is the phrase I have always heard.
It's not easy to understand the definition of the link above , they "manage to get the result" (-cite) , what does it mean ?
Does result here means "reason"?
