Abstract

Beware of what people tell you—especially online. How much can you trust your networks these days, especially in the disembodied digital frontier where rumours, lies, quasi-facts and conspiracies circulate at the speed of electrons? But is it anything new? Three philosophers of knowledge tell us if there’s anything to worry about in the so-called post-truth world—and ways to solve it if there is.
