Testimony

Project Starting: January 1st 2021 

KnowledgeLab is taking off in the beginning of next year, stay tuned!

This work package will develop a novel, knowledge-first framework for the epistemology of testimony, together with a novel account of testimonial justification. The key hypothesis is that, because testimonial exchanges have the function of generating knowledge in hearers, hearers are by default justified in trusting a speaker’s claim (absent defeaters). More details soon.
