Truth Be Told | MoMA R&D Salon 20 | MoMA LIVE

Throughout history, truth has preoccupied all disciplines and ways of thought, strongly correlated as it is with the principles that shape our collective sphere, including trust, democracy, justice, and freedom. In this salon, we will discuss what truth looks like in different fields, from science to poetry, philosophy, design, and even journalism, and how the arts can offer alternative ways to unearth and tell the truth.

Speakers include:

Paul Boghossian, Professor, Philosophy Department, and Director, New York Institute of Philosophy, New York University

Janna Levin, author; Tow Professor of Physics and Astronomy, Barnard College, Columbia University; and Director of Sciences, Pioneer Works

Emily Parker, writer, editor, and digital diplomacy advisor

Maria Popova, writer and founder of Brain Pickings

Ahmed Shihab-Eldin, Emmy-nominated journalist and senior correspondent at AJ+
