On his book Invented Knowledge: False History, Fake Science and Pseudo-Religions

Cover Interview of July 08, 2009

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline

“The questions answered by the pseudo-historians are questions that a curious public frequently asks.”



We highlighted two quotes.


On the first page:

“For the most part pseudo- or fringe knowledge is a product of modern industrial and post-industrial society with its mass education and mass culture.”



On the second:

“It is an interesting aspect of pseudo-scholarship and its practitioners that their ideas are often mutually exclusive.  If one is true, the others generally have to be false.”
