about

Counterknowledge is misinformation packaged to look like fact. From 9/11 conspiracy theories to Holocaust denial, we are all experiencing an epidemic of demonstrably untrue descriptions of the world—dangerous nonsense. The circulation of false information is creating a global generation of misguided adherents who repeat these untruths and lend them credence. In Counterknowledge, Damian Thompson explores these unproven theories and demonstrates that unless the defenders of enlightenment values fight back soon, the counterknowledge industry has the potential to create new political, social, and economic disasters.
