Pundits everywhere claim that, in the age of Trump and Brexit, political life no longer depends on any shared sense of truth. This talk will consider the validity of this claim, exploring the role of truth in democracies going back to the eighteenth century, but also the changed circumstances of the present in Europe and much of the world.

Free lunch will be available to all attendees.
