Establishing shared realities is basic to human nature. People turn to each other to make sense of their experiences: they seek to verify what is true and authentic, both about the world around them and about themselves. In today’s world, questions about how people discern what is truly real have become increasingly ubiquitous. How do social groups shape people’s beliefs about the truth? How do they shape people’s core identities? What is the ‘true self’? What kinds of interactions feel authentic? This preconference explores these questions by assembling a diverse group of experts from the growing fields of Shared Reality and Authenticity to discuss how humans turn to each other to determine the truth.
