The Destruction of Reality
November 2, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Jason Stanley is the Jacob Urowsky professor of Philosophy at Yale University. His most recent book, How Propaganda Works, was the winner of the 2016 PROSE award for philosophy. He is also the child of Holocaust survivors. Stanley’s studies of propaganda as it intersects with freedom of speech and as a tool for authoritarianism, have led him to work issues such as mass incarceration. This presentation will discuss contemporary propaganda, reality, and democracy.
