Much of what we know and believe about the world comes through social interactions. For example, we give and receive testimony, discuss questions with others, and hear and transmit rumors. Such interactions are not always helpful: think of wide-spread prejudices, propaganda, “fake news.” So how should we respond to and shape our social interactions if we want to improve our knowledge and understanding of the world? Possible topics include: testimony, disagreement, authority, rumors and gossip, open-mindedness, and epistemic injustice.
