GKA SOCIAL 2019 – 7th International Congress on Social Sciences

The title of my presentation is “The post-truth condition, a cultural and historical approach”. I argue that the real problem with post-truth that many treatments are not getting is it is founded in a problem of rampage distrust.

But sociology is a type of science; it’s just not one that uses beakers or microscopes. Rather than […]
