Product Details


A bracing challenge to Internet enthusiasts.—Booklist

Lynch effectively presents the case for rationality against factional loyalties and insists that there should be vigorous promotion of scientific methods and thinking in public discourse. . . . An excellent, much-needed contribution to the constant battle to sort truth from falsity.—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

[Lynch] pursues his argument with commendable seriousness, clarity, and attunement to historical context….He has written an intelligent book that struggles honestly with important questions: Is the net turning us into passive knowers? Is it degrading our ability to reason? What can we do about this?—David Weinberger, LA Review of Books

[A] fascinating new book…Lynch has been writing about this topic for a long time, and passionately.—Jill Lepore, The New Yorker

Lynch’s basic argument is that if we understand better the conditions under which knowledge is produced and disseminated—conditions he explores clearly and cogently—then we will become more ‘responsible’ knowers.—Wall Street Journal
