Title: "Epistemic Respect and Epistemic Injustice"

Abstract: I explore the notion of disrespect as it relates to epistemic injustice. I use Darwall's distinction between appraisal respect and recognition respect to clarify two ways that individuals are wronged when they are deprived of credibility. I argue that agents are owed a sort of epistemic recognition respect in light of their standing in an epistemic community, and ability to participate in inquiry.
