At TEDxWarwick, Quassim will discuss conspiracy theories and their implications. He will explore how they pose a threat to our knowledge and stress the growing importance of debunking them as we find ourselves increasingly exposed to fake news and alternative facts.

Quassim Cassam is a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Warwick, having previously taught at the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge and UCL. He is the author of four books and was recently awarded a Leadership Fellowship by the AHRC.
