Dean Cocking : Evil Online

Dean Cocking : Evil Online

Deep Trouble PODCAST

with Dr Mark Halloran

Moral philosopher Dr Dean Cocking discusses his book Evil Online, which examines the evil that is perpetrated everyday by normal people, primarily on social media. We discuss his theory of a ‘moral fog’, Hannah Arendt’s idea of the banality of evil, and how social media echo chambers facilitate a kind of moral confusion and lynch mob mentality.
