Truth, Power, and the Foundations of Democracy

A series of events at Dartmouth College

2019

What role should truth have in a just and democratic society? How important are claims to truth for resisting unjust social practices? Can democracies effectively handle problems related to misinformation and limited information?

Truth, Power, and the Foundations of Democracy is an interdisciplinary project aimed at addressing these questions, and related ones. Register here to join the discussion this summer on the campus of Dartmouth College.

Truth, Power, and the Foundations of Democracy is co-organized by J. Russell Muirhead (Dartmouth Government) and David Plunkett (Dartmouth Philosophy).
