Misinformation
Information may be power, but misinformation appears to be usurping the throne. From COVID-19 to QAnon, misinformation is more ubiquitous and more dangerous than ever. But why is it so much more attractive to so many? Are there factors that make misinformation more (or less) likely to be believed? What draws people into the world of conspiracy theories? And if our media environment shoulders much of the blame, can democratic societies do anything to stem the flow of fake news?

Quassim Cassam, Lisa Bortolotti, and Cailin O’Connor consider the world’s misinformation problem, its causes, and some potential solutions.

Hosted by the Forum for Philosophy.

Attendance at an event will be shared with other parts of the School.
