Reading “Post-Truth” through Communication: Rumors, Rationality and Truth

Type: Master thesis
Title: Reading “Post-Truth” through Communication: Rumors, Rationality and Truth
Author: Shuyu, Zhang
Issue Date: 2017-08-31
Keywords: post-truth
communication
rationality
Abstract: This thesis is a reflection on a recently popular word "post-truth". In my writing, I want to reveal the problems with the use of "post-truth", especially the definition of it by the Oxford Dictionary. Instead of considering truth as objective facts as the dictionary does, I read "truth" through intersubjective communication.
