CONSOLATIONS FOR A POST-TRUTH WORLD

How did we find ourselves in a 'post-truth' world of lies, deception, and 'alternative facts'? And can we get out of it? Philosopher Julian Baggini sets out to answer these questions by looking at the complex history of truth and falsehood. He takes us through different types of supposed and real truths and explains there is no one type that we can rely on unquestioningly. That, however, does not mean the truth can never be established. Truth has become much less plain and simple, but people have not ceased to believe in it. Attaining truth is an achievement we need to work for. Baggini provides us with all we need to restore faith in the value and possibility of truth. A needed antidote for all truth-seekers.
