The co-hosts welcome Keith Kahn-Harris, author of Denial: The Unspeakable Truth. They discuss what the various kinds of denialism have in common, strategies to fight denialism, and confronting the “post-denialist” environment into which Kahn-Harris thinks we’re moving. Much of the discussion focuses on his claims that denialism is a bad-faith strategy that people resort to when their true desires have become unspeakable, and that conflicts between denialists and their opponents are not just about the facts, but ultimately about morality.
