Matthew Dentith

Matthew R. X. Dentith (or M) received their Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Auckland, where they wrote their dissertation on the epistemology of conspiracy theories. The author of the first single-author book on conspiracy theories by a philosopher (The Philosophy of Conspiracy Theories (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014)), their current research interest is in developing a framework for the investigation of conspiracy theories, focussing on the role of expertise and evidence evaluation in complex epistemic communities. They also have a side project developing an account of how we might talk about the epistemology of secrecy generally, which should probably be kept secret until such time it is ready to be leaked to the public.
