CONSPHERE

“Conspiracy Theories and Now”, directed by Juha Räikka (University of Tarku, Finland), deals with epistemic, ethical and pragmatic questions concerning conspiracy theories. The project explores these questions through philosophical analysis. Its research material consists of literature in Philosophy, History, Political Science and Social Psychology. The project aims to answer the question of how conspiracy theories should be understood and how we deal with conspiracy theory in practice. It will focus on topics such as ordinary language meaning of conspiracy theories, reliability of knowledge-producing institutions, the social nature of knowledge and its rationality, collective moral responsibility of conspiracy theorizing and interference with harmful conspiracy theories.
