Archive Story


In an era of fake news, information overload, and disputed facts, how can we develop skills to think critically, confront our biases, and evaluate fact from opinion? In this presentation, Dr. Tom Chatfield, a philosopher of technology, best-selling author, and a fixture on the BBC, will discuss the nuances of this so-called “post-truth” era and share his "10 Commandments of Critical Thinking." His presentation will be followed by a lively Q&A session with the audience. Light refreshments will be served.
