The emergence and influence of collective beliefs
Noography is the study of the emergence and programming of collective human beliefs as a complex information science.
Noography is the process by which collective beliefs form and change, both naturally and under the intentional and participatory influence of other people.
Noography is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of social information disorders such as:
- misinformation and disinformation
- digital influence and propaganda
- alternate realities and cult formation
- ideologically-driven collective action
- data surveillance, algorithmic bias, and behavioral manipulation
The word “noography” comes from Noos (mind) + Graphy (writing or study), and is partially inspired by the concept of the noosphere.
