Skepticism and Critical Thinking in the 21st Century (Mary Winspear Centre)

Part of: Digital Reactionaries (Mary Winspear Centre)

Course description

In light of growing anti-intellectualism, we are faced with a daunting prospect: a world where facts matter less than popularity, and where certainty threatens to replace truth. We are entering what some scholars refer to as a “post-truth age” and it is happening at a perilous time. From political  instability and economic uncertainty, to climate catastrophe and the ever-present threat of a global pandemic, we need expertise and verifiable, empirical facts more than ever to serve as the foundation for good decision making. How can we push back against the rise of “post-truth” politics or a “post-truth” society?
