RELIABILITY AND SOCIAL KNOWLEDGERELEVANT RESPONSIBILITY
Palavras-chave:Global Reliabilism. Epistemic Responsibility. Laurance Bonjour. Reflective Endorsement. Anti-Individualism.
Knowledge seems to need the admixture of de facto reliability and epistemic responsibility. But philosophers have had a hard time in attempting to combine them in order to achieve a satisfactory account of knowledge. In this paper I attempt to find a solution by capitalizing on the real and ubiquitous human phenomenon that is the social dispersal of epistemic labour through time. More precisely, the central objective of the paper is to deliver a novel and plausible social account of knowledge-relevant responsibility and to consider the merits of the proposed combination of reliability and responsibility with respect to certain cases of unreflective epistemic subjects.
