Profs & Pints Goes Full Conspiracy this Month

Have you ever wondered how conspiracy theories start and spread? Would you like to learn how to distinguish justified suspicion from paranoid musings? The next Profs & Pints will dive into all these topics and ideas with Mark Huston, an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Schoolcraft College and Conspiracy Theory Scholar.

Professor Huston will "discuss some of the common theories about conspiracy theories and guide you through the debate between those scholars who regard conspiracy theories as fundamentally problematic and those who defend conspiracy theories as playing an important role in public life. You’ll learn about what the philosophy of science terms “the demarcation problem”—the task of distinguishing scientific theories from pseudo-scientific ones—and how drawing a line separating one from the other is more difficult than many realize."

Grab a pint from Ghost Light Bar and then sit back, relax, and learn something in the air-conditioned comfort of Ant Hall (attached). Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door, and $13 with a student ID. Planet ant Theatre is located at 2320 Caniff St, Hamtramck, MI 48212.
