What to Believe in Uncertain Times?
“What to Believe in Uncertain Times?” is the latest installment of Big Questions, presented by the Notre Dame Alumni Association. As we get closer and closer to the 2020 election — and the first presidential debate held at Notre Dame — competing information, even misinformation is everywhere. “What to Believe in Uncertain Times?” is designed to help you learn how to constructively debate, positively make arguments, and change or confirm your own beliefs as you find the truth. This four-part, digital micro-course, led by Dr. Paul Blaschko, uses short videos, recommended readings, and interactive worksheets to help you sort through the noise and navigate uncertain times.
