Gloria Origgi an Italian philosopher and tenured senior researcher at CNRS discusses the paradigm shift in our relationship to knowledge.
From the ‘information age’, we are moving towards the ‘reputation age’.
Information will have value only if it is already filtered, evaluated and commented upon by others.
We are reliant on what are the inevitably biased judgments of other people, most of whom we do not know.
Be competent at reconstructing the reputational path of the piece of information in question.
Evaluate the intentions of those who circulated it.
Figure out the agendas of those authorities that leant it credibility.
