Making Sense examines the philosophical issues and disputes that lie behind the news headlines of the day. The book covers themes such as morality, the environment and religious faith through such news stories as the Clinton-Lewinsky affair, the war against terrorism and the siege at Waco. It interweaves philosophy and current affairs to create a compelling narrative that challenges how we make sense both of the world around us and of our own beliefs. Julian Baggini is the editor and co-publisher of The Philosophers' Magazine.

This book bridges a gap between discussions about truth, human understanding, and epistemology in philosophical circles, and debates about objectivity, bias, and truth in journalism. It examines four major philosophical theories in easy to understand terms while maintaining a critical insight which is fundamental to the contemporary study of journalism. The book aims to move forward the discussion of truth in the news media by dissecting commonly used concepts such as bias, objectivity, balance, fairness, in a philosophically-grounded way, drawing on in depth interviews with journalists to explore how journalists talk about truth.
