Details

The Autumn 2018 Index on Censorship magazine asks whether we are turning away from facts, reason and science in favour of emotions.
TV presenter Evan Davis speaks about why we are willing to believe lies, while philosopher Julian Bagginioutlines the difficulties of sharing a viewpoint that is not popular.
Meanwhile, Timandra Harkness illustrates how you can have an argument. We also have articles from Kaya Genç in Turkey exploring the current attack on science in the education system, from Stephen Woodman in Mexico on the rise of documentaries as an antidote to a biased media and from Dan Nolan in Hungary on increasing government interference in the arts and now sciences.
Outside the special report, don't miss Amanda Leigh Lichtenstein writing about the Tanzanian government's attempt to muzzle bloggers through introducing fees that are more than most people's salaries, and Nobel Prize-winning novelist and poet Herta Müller on being threatened by the secret police in Romania.
