We live in a time when the very idea of objective truth is mocked and discounted by the US President. Discredited conspiracy theories and ideologies have resurfaced, proven science is once more up for debate. The wisdom of the crowd has usurped research and expertise. Michiko Kakutani identifies the trends – originating on both the right and the left – that have combined to elevate subjectivity over factuality, science, and common values. Offering a provocative diagnosis of our current condition Kakatani presents a path forward for our truth-challenged times.
