      Complement it with Arendt on the crucial difference between truth and meaning, the power of outsiderdom, our impulse for self-display, what free will really means, and her beautiful love letters, then revisit Walt Whitman on how literature bolsters democracy and Carl Sagan on why science is a tool of political harmony. The Journal of Language and Politics (JLP) represents an interdisciplinary and critical forum for analysing and discussing the various dimensions in the interplay between language and politics. It locates at the intersection of several social science disciplines including communication and media research, linguistics, discourse studies, political science, political sociology or political.

    Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. George Orwell.   Hans-Georg Gadamer’s Truth and Method offers a distinctive account of the human relationship to language and history. The book had a transformative effect on many fields, including political theory. It offers a persuasive hermeneutic theory of what the obstacles to and possibilities for textual interpretation actually are and thus forms an account of the proper practice of political theory.

    As an essayist, notably for “Politics and the English Language” and “The Prevention of Literature,” he explored the intersection of political and literary cultures. In “Politics and the English Language,” Orwell considers how, in light of World War II, wordy, vague prose contributes to a political culture of manipulation and violence. Logical positivism, while massively influential, is widely regarded as a failure, and this is the manifesto of that failed movement. For that reason, unless you are a serious student of philosophy, there's not much point in reading Language, Truth, and Logic, especially given that Ayer's own principle of verification has been more or less completely replaced in the scientific community by.

The essay focuses on political language, which, according to Orwell, "is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind". Orwell believed that the language used was necessarily vague or meaningless because it was intended to hide the truth rather than express it.

In all countries, language is an important political and cultural issue. Sociolinguists, sociologists, anthropologists, educationists and many others in the hyphenated language disciplines, as well as politicians, know this well.

Saying the unsayable has become the norm, but when public language breaks down, argues former BBC director general Mark Thompson, politics falls apart by Mark Thompson Published on Sat 27 Aug   The best defence against post-truth politics is not 'the truth'.

Democracy should resist the political tyranny of claims to some immutable truth as a basis for governing the lives of others. If language is thus reduced to a sort of jockeying for position among points of view, then it is also reduced to a power struggle, and the truth becomes merely the dominant viewpoint.

The book. According to one view, it is as absurd to explain the notion of truth in general as it is to explain the notion of winning the game for an arbitrary game. Knowing what it takes to win the game is inseparable from knowing what the game consists in. Far from showing the absence of a philosophical problem about truth, this argument establishes the link between the concept of truth and the concept.Unfortunately, factual truth, once destroyed has “slim chance” of surviving or reemerging once destroyed.

In essence, there is a tension between Truth and Politics because sometimes in the course of politics—that is action in common for common purposes—we seek to manipulate the truth .This book explores the challenges that disinformation, fake news and post-truth politics pose to democracy from a multidisciplinary perspective.

The authors analyse and interpret how the use of technology and social media as well as the emergence of new political narratives has been progressively changing the information landscape, undermining some of the pillars of democracy. The volume sheds.
