2018 Theme & Schedule

“The Myth of Truth”

“The Myth of Truth” will be a three-day discussion of the nature of truth. At The Gathering 2018, we will examine truth from the perspective of building “proof” in questions of mathematics, science, philosophy, art, and politics. The question of the value of truth has lain dormant for the most part until fairly recently, when policy makers and journalists have raised questions about who should determine truth. Some have offered “alternative facts” so that truth has come to seem to a divided nation to be more myth than reality to one side or the other. It is perhaps the most important question for our time.
