Truth, Post-Truth and Nothing but the Truth
Can there be anything true if there’s no truth? Apparently, public opinion is being swayed towards the resounding – and consequently absurd – ‘yes’. In this podcast we’ll address the notion of “post-truth” and its validity in the context of our times, i.e. corrosion of modern age and its concepts, as well as the fact that the very act of admitting its validity immediately annihilates it and sends us back before the notion of truth that can admit no ‘post-‘ prefix. In the process we point out the necessity of ‘system’ as crypto-anthropomorphic principle of modern knowledge and its utter instability as displayed by impotence of “logic and facts” approach in combating identity politics and claim that it is a shadow of the original, transcendental and theomorphic, notion of truth; one that seems to come back to the fore in our day precisely in consequence of the annihilation of truth as it was understood in modernity.
