Vincent F. Hendricks: Attention economics and truth in digital society

714 views
We ask Vincent F. Hendricks, professor of formal philosophy at Copenhagen University and the director of the Center for Information and Bubble Studies how to think about information, knowledge, and truth, in the internet age, where information is  quickly shared or algorithmically curated, and  where the model of liberal democracy, such as the public sphere, are undergoing rapid change. We talk about fake news, Trump, radical scepticism, social psychology, filter bubbles, power laws of attention economics, and pluralistic ignorance.

Vincent’s web page is at http://vince-inc.com/vincent/ and his 2016 book on explaining individual behaviour on the social net is Hendricks and Hansen, “Infostorms,” Springer 2016.
