Along with [UCI Associate Professor] Cailin O’Connor and [UCI Professor] James Owen
Weatherall’s “The Misinformation Age: How False Beliefs Spread,” [Bruno] Latour’s
new book offers a way to think through the seemingly insurmountable impasse carved
out by political polarization and fake news. Of the two volumes, “The Misinformation
Age” takes the more methodical and earnest approach. O’Connor and Weatherall are professors
of logic, and they break down the mechanics of misinformation accordingly.
