Summary: In this paper, the author addresses the problem of to what provides epistemic justification for taking someone’s testimony as true. That is, to what extent testimony provides conveys warrant? More precisely, the author argues, contra C. J. A. Coady, that testimony does not easily provide warrant in most of the cases, yet the whether a testimony conveys warrant is context-sensitive: different levels of warrant are transmitted in different contexts.
Comment: This could work as secondary reading for a postgraduate course in epistemology, focusin on the epistemology of testimony.
