Knowledge Norms and Conversational Background invited for volume on the Epistemology of Conversation by Waldo J. Silva Film
Abstract: Epistemic norms on conversation have been well studied by way of epistemic norms on assertion — for example: assert that p only if you know that p (e.g., Williamson 1996; 2000). The success of conversations, however, depends on the satisfaction of epistemic norms other than assertoric norms, for example, as recent work suggests, the satisfaction of epistemic norms of interrogative speech acts are likewise critical to a conversation’s success (Willard-Kyle 2021). My aim is to investigate (beyond epistemic norms on assertoric and interrogative speech) a largely overlooked species of epistemic norm with critical import to conversational success — namely, epistemic norms governing our beliefs (as well as presumptions) about the conversational common ground, and — closely relatedly — our beliefs (as well as presumptions) about what our interlocutors believe and presume about the conversational common ground. What will emerge is a defence of a package of knowledge norms whose content concerns the conversational common ground and our (and our interlocutors’) attitudes toward it; the explanatory power of these norms will help make sense (beyond the explanatory power of existing knowledge norms) of why certain conversations — including polarised conversations — fail when they do.
