內容簡介

紐約時報暢銷書《迷戀音樂的腦》、《為什麼傷心的人要聽慢歌》作家丹尼爾.列維廷最新作品
處在充滿謊言、假新聞及偽證的世界,如何在後真相時代學習思考

暢銷書作家丹尼爾.列維廷提到錯誤的訊息與數據,往往會造成人們有嚴重扭曲的想法,帶領我們做下錯誤的決定。談話性節目看似頭頭是道的激辯,更容易帶領人們走向偏離真相的軌道。丹尼爾將在本書帶領讀者以科學的方法,透過有邏輯的思考方式避免受騙,如何在充滿謊言的世界中辨析各種真偽,包括新聞、廣告,甚至許多看似真實的學術報告。社會上有許多看似無害的社會現象例如「邊緣理論」、「偏激觀點」、「另類事實」及「假新聞」等,其實都帶有強大的殺傷力。唯有學習如何重整思考邏輯,才能在謊言氾濫的後真相時代脫穎而出。 

Previously Published as A Field Guide to Lies

We’re surrounded by fringe theories, fake news, and pseudo-facts. These lies are getting repeated. New York Times bestselling author Daniel Levitin shows how to disarm these socially devastating inventions and get the American mind back on track. Here are the fundamental lessons in critical thinking that we need to know and share now.


Investigating numerical misinformation, Daniel Levitin shows how mishandled statistics and graphs can give a grossly distorted perspective and lead us to terrible decisions. Wordy arguments on the other hand can easily be persuasive as they drift away from the facts in an appealing yet misguided way. The steps we can take to better evaluate news, advertisements, and reports are clearly detailed. Ultimately, Levitin turns to what underlies our ability to determine if something is true or false: the scientific method. He grapples with the limits of what we can and cannot know. Case studies are offered to demonstrate the applications of logical thinking to quite varied settings, spanning courtroom testimony, medical decision making, magic, modern physics, and conspiracy theories.

This urgently needed book enables us to avoid the extremes of passive gullibility and cynical rejection. As Levitin attests: Truth matters. A post-truth era is an era of willful irrationality, reversing all the great advances humankind has made. Euphemisms like "fringe theories," "extreme views," "alt truth," and even "fake news" can literally be dangerous. Let's call lies what they are and catch those making them in the act.
