Title: Michelle Ciurria
Responsibility, epistemic confidence, and substantial trust

Abstract: This paper offers a feminist social epistemological account of  
responsible agency, which draws attention to the ecological preconditions  
for this capacity. Specifically, it posits epistemic confidence as an  
epistemic platform for the exercise of responsible agency, and from there,  
it identifies two environmental conditions required for the realization of  
epistemic confidence and (thus) responsibility: (1) epistemic justice, and  
(2) substantial trust. This approach shifts attention away from the  
internal capacities of responsible agents, focusing instead on the  
environmental conditions required for these capacities to develop. This  
marks a substantial departure from the classic view, which assumed that  
responsibility was largely (1) atomistic, (2) backward-looking, and (3)  
retributive. The feminist social epistemological framework instead sees  
responsibility as essentially social and care-based.
