Trust, Testimony, and Prejudice in the Credibility Economy

Hypatia 26 (2):280-293 (2011)

Abstract

In this paper I argue for a special kind of injustice I call “trust injustice.” Taking Miranda Fricker's work on epistemic injustice as my starting point, I argue that there are some ethical constraints on trust relationships. If I am right about this, then we sometimes have duties to maintain trust relationships that are independent of the social roles we play.
