Concept Note:
The political and philosophical concepts of post-truth continue to be the prime subject of discussion and practice these days. The entrapment in the post-truth era seeks to discover the influence of various direct and indirect factors, influencing the exercise of post-truth models in society creating circuitous slippage between alternative facts and truth. Post-truth being significant in the past and the present, the various perspectives from the disciplines of literature and media would help to delineate the influence and impact of the concept on society.
