The suggested reading for this meetup was a winner of 3 Quarks Daily's philosophy prize for 2012, and it tackles the thorny issue of the complex relationship between democracy and truth. As the author puts it: "in a democracy there should be no dogma: no knowledge protected from public challenge and debate. Yet this whole argument is founded on embarrassing misconceptions of the nature of truth and of the working of democracy."
