A New Approach To Defining Extremism

With Bertram Vidgen
31 Mar 2016
With Bertram Vidgen

Bertie Vidgen argues that current definitions of extremism are severely limited. They are posed as certainties rather than probabilities, and this makes them incapable of capturing the complexity of social reality – and very difficult to apply. Bertie then points towards a new way of defining parties, based on Bayesian probabilities.

This talk was organised through the Oxford Extremism Research Network’s Hilary Term Seminar Series.
