Trust and the Curse of Cassandra (An Exploration of the Value of Trust)

Philosophy in the Contemporary World 10 (2):105-111 (2003)
Abstract
Epistemological interest in trust concentrates mainly on whether and how it is a proper resource for responsible knowers. However, trust is important and valuable to epistemic agents for reasons that do not depend on its being knowledge-conducive, or knowledge enhancing. Being trusted is essential for full participation in an epistemic community. The story of Cassandra illustrates these dimensions of trust's value
