    Pure Intuition: Miranda Fricker on the Economy of Prejudice.Bonilla Jesús Zamora - 2008 - Theoria: Revista de Teoría, Historia y Fundamentos de la Ciencia 23 (1):77-80.

Against the latter, argumentation is proposed as a more important epistemic practice than testimony.

    Our purpose in this paper is to contribute to a practice-based characterization of scientific inference. We want to explore whether Brandom’s pragmatist–inferentialist framework can suitably accommodate several types of ampliative inference common in scientific reasoning and explanation. First, we argue that Brandom’s view of induction in terms of merely permissive inferences is inadequate; in order to overcome the shortcoming of Brandom’s proposal, we put forward an alternative conception of inductive, probabilistic reasoning by appeal to the notion of degrees of commitment.
