S&F in Philosophy Now: Obscurantism & Politics

S&F - Obscuranticism 400 x 900This cartoon accompanied Obscurantism & The Language of Excess, an article written by Siobhan Lyons for Philosophy Now.

The article, which is well written as well as entertaining, deals with the concept of obscurantism, that is, the “darkening or purposeful withholding of knowledge, or communicating in a purposefully complicated manner”.

The link between obscurantism and politics isn’t all that much of a stretch.
