« We Cannot Infer by Accepting Testimony »

Ulf Hlobil signe un article intitulé « We Cannot Infer by Accepting Testimony« , à paraître dans Philosophical Studies, 1-10.

While we can judge and believe things by merely accepting testimony, we cannot make inferences by merely accepting testimony. A good theory of inference should explain this. The theories that are best suited to explain this fact seem to be theories that accept a so-called intuitional construal of Boghossian’s Taking Condition.
