Perfectioning trust, reinforcing testimony



Francisco Javier GIL


Miranda Fricker characterizes the most basic or primary form of epistemic, testimonial injustice by way of  a  set  of  negative  delimitations.  In  this  paper  I  raise  some  doubts  about  how  these  delimitations  are drawn, about the wrongful harms and disadvantages the testimonial injustice is supposed to entail and produce, and about the way Miranda Fricker clarifies the perfectionist character of the corrective virtue on the part of hearers, the ethical and intellectual virtue of testimonial justice.
