New Article “The Problem of Post-Truth” in Behemoth

My essay “The Problem of Post-Truth” has just been published in Behemoth. A Journal on Civilisation. I argue that the diagnosis of a “post-truth era” is wrong and dangerous. Yet its popularity attests to the fact, that the diagnosis strikes a nerve. So what is that problem that gives rise to the wrong diagnosis of a “post-truth era” yet is not correctly understood by the diagnosis?

The article belongs to a highly recommanded special issue on “The Desire for Truth and the Political”, edited by Christine Hentschel und Susanne Krasmann.
