Event Details
Social media, post truth and what makes a good argument? Marina Charalampidi has been researching the university IGGY network. The discussions in IGGY forums appear to be carried out by people who are respectful and reflective. But how can you show this? Marina explains. Social media, post truth and echo chambers. Social media and online forums are getting blamed for spreading a post truth culture (the truth is whatever we want it to be’) but is this right? What might democratic social media look like? Michael Hammond poses some questions. Philosophy and argument. If you are looking for a good argument you might find it in philosophy and among those interested in philosophising. Emma Williams looks at the kinds of discussion taking place among philosophy students both on and off line. Please confirm your attendance by filling in this form, as places are limited.
