June 13th: "Echo Chambers & Epistemic Bubble" Reading Group with POPCO at 6PM

  • Registration is required for this event.

What is an "echo chamber"?

How should we interact with, listen to, and trust people we disagree with?
Why are conspiracy theories attractive?

This month we explore issues in social epistemology and the kinds of social structures that affect how we explore our beliefs. These two essays are “popular philosophy,” versions of articles the authors have published in professional philosophical journals, and are chock-full of subtle and substantial points about how we form our beliefs about the world and how these beliefs can be affected by our social networks.

 

C. Thi Nguyen, in "Escape the Echo Chamber," thinks there is an important distinction between epistemic bubbles—social structures in which we don’t hear contrary information—and echo chambers, which are social structures which diminish our trust in sources that disagree with us.

In his essay, he explores how this distinction affects how we should think about engaging with those whom we disagree.

In his essay, "The Warped Epistemology of Conspiracy Theories," Maarten Boudry explores why we believe in conspiracy theories and how conspiracy theories are unique kinds of theories.
