How did we find ourselves in a “post-truth” world of “alternative facts”? And can we get out of it? Julian Baggini will take us on a whirlwind tour of its history through the ten types of truth and how each can become false. Unfortunately for us, there is no type of truth that we can rely on unquestioningly. But there is hope, he will explain that we can all play a role in attaining truth and this Salon will provide us with all we need to restore faith in the value and he’ll even be asking us to consider the possibility of truth as a social enterprise.
Julian will be in conversation with Helen Bagnall.
