Denialism: what drives people to reject the truth

Here is an artcle touching upon issues of truth and denial, exploring aspects of belief formation. In TEC we work with pedagogical strategies that address denialism (as well as extremism and hate speech that are often related) striving to create safe places "where things are put on the table" and handled by informed teachers who fully grasp the variety of responses available to them (parochial, interventionist, judicial, etc.). Check out activities in the TEC Academy, particularly the Thinking together: the philosophical strand. Comments are welcome!
