Facticity Panel: Truth and Truthiness

This panel of USU faculty members will discuss the tension, if not outright conflict, between truth and truthiness in the media and in popular opinion. How do we distinguish between these concepts? Can we as a society find a consistent means of arriving at a baseline of accepted, evidence-based knowledge, from which good-faith discussions can proceed? Is it possible (as Aristotle might have put it) to ascend from the world of mere opinion to knowledge about social, political, economic, and scientific facts or truth? If so, how do we do so? How do we encourage critical thinking, not only in the media, but in public life and in education?
