Overview

Testimony is an invaluable source of knowledge. Learning from Words promises to reshape the vigorous current debate on the topic by showing that the standard view of the transmission of knowledge by testimony is fundamentally misguided. Jennifer Lackey>'s radical new theory holds that testimony is itself an irreducible source of new knowledge, to which both speaker and hearer contribute.
