The Social Superpower: The Big Truth about Little Lies

Venue: Public Hall

18 September 2022 12:00 pm


Little white ones? Big fat ones? The former Times journalist marvels at mendacity. How do we lie, often under the most ordinary of circumstances? When do we first do it, why do we do it and do we really tell more lies today? She’ll take us deep into disinformation to find out, and introduce us to a cast of professionals and professional liars - from scientists to investigators, from double agents to toddler specialists, from a fallen titan of industry to a Nobel Peace Prize-winning journalist. Will they prove a remarkable thesis: lies hold us together as much as they push us apart and they play a vital role in a healthy society. But can you be sure you can believe anything she says?
