First Colloquium: deLaplante on Critical Thinking about Conspiracies


Kevin deLaplante (Philosophy) “Critical Thinking About Conspiracies” Thursday, September 1, 3:40-5:00 215 Ross Hall

“Conspiracy theorists” are often skilled at defending their ideas with a semblance of reason. Project team member Kevin deLaplante will share his work on how principles of critical thinking can help to sort out conspiracy claims. This project was driven in part by some of the responses he’s received from the audience of his podcasts at the Critical Thinker Academy;  he’ll be talking about his public scholarship as well.
