Throughout history, truth has preoccupied all disciplines and ways of thought, strongly correlated as it is with the principles that shape our collective sphere, including trust, democracy, justice, and freedom. In this salon, we will discuss what truth looks like in different fields, from science to poetry, philosophy, design, and even journalism, and how the arts can offer alternative ways to unearth and tell the truth.
