Abstract

With the explosion of the internet and social media, it has become incredibly easy to disseminate unfounded rumours, “fake news” and other questionable information. Erwan Lamy and Isabelle Beyneix write that this genuine epistemic pollution, which undermines democracy and the trust necessary for the proper conduct of business, should be taken into account just like attacks on the environment and on the social climate. The notion of corporate social responsibility could thus be completed by introducing a specific notion of epistemic responsibility for companies.
