ARE WE LIVING IN A POST-TRUTH WORLD WHERE ALTERNATIVE REALITY REPLACES HARD FACTS, AND WHERE OPINIONS CARRY MORE WEIGHT THAN EVIDENCE?
HOW DID WE GET HERE?
Join Cambridge Forum for an open discussion with Lee McIntyre, philosopher and author from BU's History of Science department who is also an instructor in Ethics at the Harvard Extension School. McIntyre will discuss his book "Post Truth" which traces the rise of the phenomenon from its roots in scientific denial to the ascendancy of fake news, from our psychological blind spots to the public's retreat into "information silos".
Please come and join the live conversation.
Free and open to all.
