Uncertain Truths: On the Limits of the Critique of Globalization and the Sciences

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

As anti-globalization and anti-science rhetoric become central to right-wing agendas, the study of food allows social scientists and humanities-oriented scholars to rethink their posture towards both. After “question everything” becomes a fact-free, alt-right, call to arms, we are forced to learn new lessons in how radical doubt could be a socially dubious thing. We can no longer return to the metaphysical question of truth with certainty. Nevertheless, pure criticism feels inadequate at this precarious moment.
