The Death of Expertise
The Campaign against Established Knowledge and Why it Matters
In a world where technology and education provide access to endless information, Tom Nichols' The Death of Expertise examines how this has led to a society that values amateur opinions over expert knowledge. This rejection of experts is fueled by the internet, the trend of customer satisfaction in higher education, and the transformation of news into entertainment. The result is a society where everyone thinks they know everything and any claim to the contrary is dismissed as elitist. This book is a warning about the danger of populism and technocracy, and its message is now more important than ever.
