Welcome speech to new Humanities students 2016

Ole Hjortland (1)

On August 14th, the Faculty of Humanities welcomed the new 2016 students. I gave a short speech about what we hope to teach our students in the philosophy preparation course, Examen Philosophicum. The theme I chose was how to detect bullshit, in reference to Harry Frankfurt’s famous essay On Bullshit.
