POST-TRUTH - Saturdays, July 11–25
Saturdays, 1:00-2:30 Central
SATURDAYS, JUNE 11–25 / 1:00–2:30 PM CT
At times it seems that the “age of truth" must surely be past. Historically, philosophically, and scientifically grounded understandings of the world seem to have given way to populist fabrication, paranoid conspiracy theory, and science-denying credulity. But perhaps Shakespeare was right after all and “the truth will out.” In this intriguing and very timely workshop, we’ll discover that xenophobic populism, ignorant science-bashing, and bizarre conspiracy-mongering are not harbingers of the future but ultimately futile forms of angry backlash against the natural maturing of human culture. They are, in other words, very shallowly-rooted and unlikely to endure. Join us to learn why.
