Mr. Bardon discusses the philosophy and the social science of ideological denialisms like the denial of climate science, or the denial of the need for masking and distancing during the COVID pandemic. What is it to be in denial about expert consensus? How is sincere self-deception possible? And why do we see certain types of denial among certain political constituencies and demographic groups? Adrian Bardon holds a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He teaches courses in the philosophy of space and time, philosophy and social psychology, 17th-18th century European philosophy, critical reasoning, the philosophy of religion, and political philosophy.
