Contextualism and Testimony
It has recently been argued that Subject-Sensitive Invariantism conflicts with an attractive testimonial principle of transmission. one might think,given the differences between Subject-Sensitive Invariantism and Contextualism,the latter would not be susceptible to related objections. I argue however that some testimonial principles with much intuitive appeal give us a related though different reason to reject Contextualism. In short,while some argue that Subject-Sensitive Invariantism seems to sometimes make testimonial knowledge too easy to come by,I argue that Contextualism seems to often make testimonial knowledge too hard to come by. Contextualism then does not enjoy an advantage over Subject-Sensitive Invariantism when it comes to capturing the transmissive role of knowledge.
