內容簡介

2016年牛津辭典的年度詞彙由「後真實」(post-truth)勝出,它打敗「另類右派」(Alt-right)、「支持英國脫歐者」(brexiteer)的原因,除了它在該年度的使用頻率比2015年暴增了20倍,另外一個重要的原因是,本書作者所大聲疾呼的,「後真實」所代表的「真相不再重要」的這種現象,正在侵蝕我們所處的世界。

隨著英國脫歐與美國大選的結束,我們認識了「後真實」這個詞。支持英國脫歐者以似是而非的口號贏得公投勝利,川普煽動支持民眾的情感而胡言亂語,視真相為無物,讓世界走進了「後真實」的時代。鬼話連篇撼動了民主的基石與我們所認識的世界,不管是脫歐、川普的勝利、拒絕相信氣候變遷的科學論述、詆毀移民者等等,這些都是以煽動情緒而非基於事實的「後真實」。到底這個詞彙表代表的意義是什麼?我們如何在謊言與「另類事實」的時代,高舉真相?

在這本令人大開眼界且即時的書中,闡述「後真實」有別於政治謊言、誇飾與政治化粧這個悠久的傳統。它所代表的不是政客的謊言,而是公眾對這些言論的反應,以及以新科技和社群媒體操弄言論、左右民意的能力。事實消失了,陰謀論到處亂竄,媒體的公信力削弱了,情緒竟然比事實還重要。

本書作者Matthew d’Ancona是英國備受尊敬的政治記者,他探查了為何我們會走到這個地步,為什麼默默順從並非選項之一,還有最重要的,我們該如何反擊。凡是關心政治新聞傳播的讀者,這是絕不能錯過的一本書。

Welcome to the Post-Truth era─ a time in which the art of the lie is shaking the very foundations of democracy and the world as we know it. The Brexit vote; Donald Trump’s victory; the rejection of climate change science; the vilification of immigrants; all have been based on the power to evoke feelings and not facts. So what does it all mean and how can we champion truth in in a time of lies and ‘alternative facts’?

In this eye-opening and timely book, Post-Truth is distinguished from a long tradition of political lies, exaggeration and spin. What is new is not the mendacity of politicians but the public’s response to it and the ability of new technologies and social media to manipulate, polarise and entrench opinion. Where trust has evaporated, conspiracy theories thrive, the authority of the media wilt and emotions matter more than facts .

Now, one of the UK’s most respected political journalists, Matthew d’Ancona investigates how we got here, why quiet resignation is not an option and how we can and must fight back.
