As Homo sapiens, we have tried to understand everything since we became humans, even the nature of knowledge itself. How can we distinguish fake news from truth and the gradations in between? We will explore the philosophy, psychology and sociology of knowing. Bring your curiosity and skepticism to this course anchored in participant discussion; we'll plumb the breadth and depth of being a knowing animal.
