Virtual - Alfred Archer, Tilburg University
Post-Truth, False Balance and Virtuous Gatekeeping
The Freedom Center Spring 2020 Colloquium Series presents Alfred Archer, Assistant Professor in Philosophy at the Tilburg Centre for Logic, Ethics, and Philosophy of Science at Tilburg University. He works primarily in moral and social philosophy, the philosophy of sport, and applied ethics, and he tries bringing philosophy to the public. He will address the dangers of false balance or "bothsideism" in journalism and argue that this practice has a significant role to play in bringing about a "post truth" environment.
This talk will be hosted on zoom by Lucy Schwarz. Please contact Lucy for details if you are interested in attending.
