Encouraging and Supporting Publicly Engaged Philosophical Research and Practices

I'm hoping that folks might be interested in my new book POST-TRUTH (MIT Press, 2018), where I make a big nod in the direction of writing philosophy for a general audience. It's really troubled me that philosophers haven't taken a more active role these days in pushing back (and educating) the public about "truth" and "facts" now that these topics are in the news on a daily basis. Harry Frankfurt did us proud with ON BULLSHIT, but I feel that we may need a whole new category now with Trump. I try to explore that -- along with the path that leads from truth denial to authoritarianism -- in POST-TRUTH. https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/post-truth

Thanks!
