Testimony is a communicative phenomenon: it is a means of acquiring knowledge through accepting the content that one recovers through a communicative exchange. Despite this, relatively little work has been done to connect work in the epistemology of testimony with work in philosophy of language and pragmatics on the nature of communication and communicative success. In recent years, more authors have begun to take an interest in these issues. This workshop will continue this trend by bringing together researchers working in epistemology and philosophy of language to explore the communicative foundations of knowledge acquisition.

This is an online event. Attendance is free, but please register for the event by 11th July 2022.
