The death of truth
Recommended by Estelle, our book seller.
Note from the editor:
From a Pulitzer Prize-winning critic comes an impassioned critique of the West’s retreat from reason.
Over the last three decades, Michiko Kakutani has been thinking and writing about the demise of objective truth in popular culture, academia, and contemporary politics. In “The death of truth”, she connects the dots to reveal the slow march of untruth up to our present moment, when Red State and Blue State America have little common ground, proven science is once more up for debate, and all opinions are held to be equally valid. (And, more often than not, rudely declared online.) The wisdom of the crowd has diminished the power of research and expertise, and we are each left clinging to the “facts” that best confirm our biases.
