Assurance views of testimony

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


In this chapter, I describe the assurance view of testimonial knowledge and warrant and consider a significant challenge to the view. Excellent critical discussions of some earlier versions of the assurance view can be found in Lackey (2008, ch. 8) and Schmitt (2010). Here, I will emphasize literature that has appeared since 2010. Other recent critical discussions may be found in Shieber (2015, ch. 5) and Gelfert (2014, ch. 8).
