The September 2019 Scientific American arrived today. In keeping with a long tradition the September issue is devoted to a single general topic. The cover title reads TRUTH LIES & UNCERTAINTY, Searching for Reality in Unreal Times.
A scientific analysis of the recent rise of false information being spread widely via the internet and social media would be interesting, but this may be about much more than that.
I personally feel that I am fairly accurate in my skeptical evaluation of information. It will be interesting to see if I still feel that way after I have read this issue.
