21st Century Philosophy (PHIL*3280)
Term: Fall 2014
This course will be structured around Miranda Fricker's important new book Epistemic Injustice: Power and the Ethics of Knowing (2007). In her book Fricker argues for a distinctively epistemic type of injustice, in which someone is wronged specifically in their capacity as a knower. We will spend the first part of the course brushing up on familiar themes in contemporary epistemology, with a special focus on testimony as a source of knowledge. Then we will read Fricker's book and explore its significance in the context of other recent work in the ethics of belief and virtue epistemology.
