Lifelong Learning Truths and Fake News Study Day

Lifelong Learning Truths and Fake News Study Day

We will be holding a one-day cultural event on Saturday 4th November 2017 consisting of a series of short talks led by experts from within Philosophy at Southampton.

What is true? How can we know it? What should we do when we have deep disagreements with others

about what the truth is? To what extent should we be held accountable for the things we believe or say if they are mistaken? Philosophers are interested in questions like these, which are at once abstract questions about the nature of reality and the fallibility of human access to it, but also practical questions of great importance: our views about the world make such a big difference to how we behave, and in turn the mistakes we make can have very real consequences. For example, disagreements about gun control, or climate change, or Brexit, get heated precisely because each side thinks that the mistakes made by the other will have significant consequences. How should we respond to intellectual disagreements like these?

The focus of this study day are the rules of belief, debate, and disagreement. It will explore some of the issues surrounding how we form our opinions, how we share our opinions, and how we compare our opinions with others'.

The price of this study day is as follows:

£35 – Full fee

£28 – Concessions – OAP or in receipt of benefits

£20 – Staff, student or alumni
