About our book, Post Truth: The phenomenon of “post-truth” rocketed to public attention in November 2016, when the Oxford Dictionaries named it 2016’ s word of the year. (After seeing a 2,000 percent spike in usage over 2015, the choice seemed obvious to Oxford.)
The Oxford Dictionaries define “post-truth” as ‘relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.’
In our book’s glossary, “post-truth is defined as “The contention that feelings are more accurate than facts, for the purpose of the political subordination of reality.” With the upcoming Presidential Election, this is an extremely important topic for our discussion!
We are extremely pleased to announce that our discussion facilitator will be John Mc Naught.
We will be meeting at the Grouse Mountain Lodge Wine Room in Whitefish. The doors open at 5:00 pm for early visiting and enjoying dinner if you wish. (Please remember that Grouse Mountain does not charge us for the room, and we want to support their efforts with food or drink purchases). Guests are welcome, as it is not necessary to have read the book to learn from our discussions.
