What Should Citizens Believe?

Exploring the issues of truth, reason and society

Author: Henry Tam

How are citizens to become more able to expose dogmas and lies that damage society?

By exploring cooperative problem-solving in diverse contexts, readers will learn more about the basis for separating reliable beliefs from dubious claims.

What Should Citizens Believe? brings together the ideas of one of the leading thinkers on communitarian rationality and democratic development and provides a number of distinct approaches to help explore the process of assessing rival contentions. These are set out in five parts:

  • Introductory Explorations
  • Practical Explorations
  • Civic Explorations
  • Philosophical Explorations
  • Novel Explorations
