Virtual Futures Salon | Luke Robert Mason in conversation with Prof. Steve Fuller

"Virtual Futures presents Prof. Steve Fuller to dicuss how the post-truth world-view is deeply rooted in the history and philosophy of religion, politics and science. The defining feature of ‘post-truth’ is a strong distinction between appearance and reality which is never quite resolved and so the strongest appearance ends up passing for reality. The only question is whether more is gained by rapid changes in appearance or by stabilizing one such appearance. Post-Truth plays out what this means for both politics and science."[2]
