O nieskuteczności prowokowania nieufności
ON THE INEFFECTIVENESS OF PROVOKING DISTRUST
Languages of publication
Witkowski accomplished a successful hoax publishing an article in the popular science magazine Charaktery that reviewed a bogus therapy that readers found interesting and believable. This commentary approaches the debate from two standpoints: (1) hoax type of provocations should be addressed to a critical reader; (2) provoking readers’ distrust does not help them choose an efficient therapy. The described provocation is discussed in relation to therapeutic choices by oncology patients.
