According to the Oxford English Dictionary conspiracy theory is “the theory that an event or phenomenon occurs as a result of a conspiracy between interested parties; spec. a belief that some covert but influential agency (typically political in motivation and oppressive in intent) is responsible for an unexplained event”. Why are conspiracy theories so popular and familiar to millions of people? What is their path of life (birth, growing and death)? Do we really need them to explain our world? Are they always imagination or simple belief? During our classes we will try to find answers to these and many other questions while working on certain examples of conspiracy theories.
