As members of the College community dedicated to research and the pursuit of knowledge, we have a special interest and obligation to maintain an environment where truth is the foundation for individual and collective action. In light of our current national context of alternative facts, we would do well to review the major techniques of gaslighting, or the strategy of making victims question their reality.

If you feel lost, tap into the Boss.

Love the quote.

Arendt's insight is especially poignant given that she was trained by Heidegger - from the school of German philosophers who felt that truth was flexible and who himself joined the Nazi party without much qualms.

Food for thought in these crazy times.

Thanks for sharing this resource, Gary. Gaslighting at a national, political level is quite bold (in recent American history, at least), so it seems we have to dig in and prepare to resist it for a while. I think we will all be looking for sources of support in the coming weeks, months, and years. I hope we can find ways to come together as a community to build out a shared platform and share this burden.
