內容簡介


諾貝爾和平獎得主、美國前總統高爾《失控的總統》出版十周年,新增了序言與論川普當選的評論。

早在1970年代,當高爾尚在軍中服役,正要前往越南擔任戰地記者時,他親眼目睹尼克森總統依靠宣傳恐懼而聚積權力,高爾的參議員父親因為站在反戰立場,而被譴責不愛國。政治歷史學家認為,這個1970年代的美國期中選舉是一個民主衰退的分水嶺。然而,這樣的衰退在近年來更加嚴重,因為恐懼已經成為比信任更有力的政治工具,大眾對娛樂買單遠遠超過對嚴肅新聞的討論,盲從已經證明比真相更為有效。

是的,美國民主危機越陷越深,特別是川普當選美國總統之後。在本書中,高爾檢視了為什麼理性力量的信仰正陷入危險的境地,這樣的信仰就是公民透過理性辯論達到自治的理念。民主仰賴的是獲得正確訊息的公民,以及對理念的雙向對話,但是公眾領域卻因為虛假新聞、恐懼政治學、死忠偏袒與盲目信仰而惡化。

在這本更新版中,高爾探究川普的崛起與後真相政治學,本書為清晰思考所做的宣言既有遠見又強而有力,他並且呼籲,重建民主生機並再次做出正確的決定是多麼重要的事!

Now with a New Preface and Conclusion: 'Post-Truth: On Donald Trump and the 2016 Election'

The United States of America is in the midst of a deepening crisis for their democracy. After the strangest election cycle in modern American history it is important that the grave threats to the American way of life that were glaringly revealed in this campaign are addressed. In The Assault on Reason, Nobel Peace Prize winner and former Vice President Al Gore examines how faith in the power of reason - the idea that citizens can govern themselves through rational debate - is in peril. Democracy depends on a well-informed citizenry and a two-way conversation about ideas, but the public sphere has been degraded by fake news and the politics of fear, partisanship and blind faith.
Now updated to investigate the rise of Trump and post-truth politics, The Assault on Reason is a farsighted and powerful manifesto for clear thinking, crucial if the vitality of democracy is to be rebuilt and good decisions made once more.
