Pursuit of Truth (identity studies)

"...This undermining of truth is reflected in the controversies plaguing Western democracies: the rise of fake news, distrust of institutions......an unfortunate combination of events that meant the new class research, known as identity studies, lack rigour......advocates of identity studies would focus on area of power imbalance in society and look for the proof. You start with the conclusion then go in search of the evidence......denying the objective truth is somewhat human to do. But in the modern period we have requirement for evidence. And that strengthens our idea of knowledge..."

Helen Pluckrose as quoted by Robert Bolton 2019

Linked with this are the principles of grievance studies that are impacting areas like literature, history, geography, engineering, etc where students are challenged over their ideas on gender, race and sexuality.
