An “Oh…” moment

So, the paper I am giving in Singapore, which is on Rumours, and touches on my thesis about the transmission of conspiracy theories is going to be preceded by Prof. Axel Gelfert’s paper entitled “Of Rumours and Conspiracy Theories: Philosophical Perspectives on Pathological Communication in the Public Sphere.”

Hmm… Hmm, says I, with bells on.

Hmm.
