Folkeopplysningen (“The Public Enlightenment”) investigates extraordinary claims in the alternative sphere and elsewhere. It puts widely believed assertions to the test of science and highlights the inherent and shared fallibility of our human brains, illustrating how “knowledge” that is widespread, treasured and lucrative can nevertheless have no basis in reality. It has prompted great enthusiasm as well as anger, and sparked national debates.
