"Knowledge matters - it matters if we are to achieve our goals, individually or communally, and it matters to a well functioning democracy."

Åsa Wikforss is Professor of Theoretical Philosophy at Stockholm University, and a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Building on her innovative work in the intersectional space between philosophy of mind, language, and epistemology, she published her book Alternative Facts in 2017 to nationwide acclaim in Sweden. The book stems from Wikforss' belief that a sound basis for knowledge is essential to the functioning of democracy, and equips citizens with the tools to resist propaganda, fake news, and conspiracy theories in a post-truth world.
