Summary
This edited collection brings together international authors to discuss the meaning and purpose of higher education in a zpost-truthy world. The editors and authors argue that notions such as zfacty and zevidencey in a post-truth era must be understood not only politically, but also socially and epistemically. The essays philosophically examine the post-truth environment and its impact on education with respect to our most basic ideas of what universities, research and education are or should be. The book brings together authors working in Australia, China, Croatia, Romania, Canada, New Zealand, Portugal, Sweden, UK and USA
