What is truth?

We live in a “post-truth” world, an age of alternative facts and misinformation.

This is a time of willful ignorance.

To see how we treat the concept of truth these days, one might think we just don’t care anymore. Politicians pronounce that global warming is a hoax.

An alarming number of middle-class parents have stopped giving their children routine vaccinations, and the number of flat-earthers appears to be on the rise.

What purpose, if any, does truth serve?
