Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

The random article for Monday, 13 April 2020 is Fringe theory.

A fringe theory is an idea or viewpoint which differs from the accepted scholarship in its field. Fringe theories include the models and proposals of fringe science, as well as similar ideas in other areas of scholarship, such as the humanities. The term fringe theory is commonly used in a narrower sense as a pejorative, roughly synonymous with pseudo-scholarship. Precise definitions that distinguish between widely held viewpoints, fringe theories, and pseudo-scholarship are difficult to construct because of the demarcation problem. Issues of false balance or false equivalence can occur when fringe theories are presented as being equal to widely accepted theories.

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 01:02 UTC on Monday, 13 April 2020.

For the full current version of the article, see Fringe theory on Wikipedia.
