Prof. Filip Buekens (Tilburg University/KU Leuven) is a versatile analytic philosopher, with publications ranging over philosophy of language, social ontology and skepticism. Noteworthy are his critical book publications on psychoanalysis and some of its protagonists: Jacques Lacan: Proefvlucht in het luchtledige (2006) and Freuds vergissing: De illusies van psychoanalyse (2006). He will address in this talk some signs of the times; I will let the title speak for itself: Fake News, Post-Truth and the Social Psychology of Polarisation.
