Presentation Title

Investigating the Harm of Testimonial Injustice

Abstract

I will be orally presenting a senior philosophy project. My paper investigates testimonial injustice, an epistemological phenomenon in which a speaker is wronged by a listener in virtue of the listener's demotion of the credibility of the speaker's testimony. My paper recharacterizes this harm by applying psychological literature on learning and conditioning such that I more accurately demonstrate the experience of the speaker in a way that shows how the harm to the speaker is actually greater than the current literature conceives.
