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.
