Sažetak
C.A.J. Coady ascribes the equally primitive epistemic status to testimony and perception. His thesis grounded on allegedly direct and non-inferential nature of both perception and testimony. Precisely, Coady builds his anti-reductionism on the comparison between perception and testimony geared to establishing their equality with regard to (primitive) epistemic status: the testimony is as direct and non-inferential as perception. Unfortunately, he does not precisely determine the meaning of these crucial concepts. We offer several ways of making it precise. Our purpose is to show that vagueness, at first glance nonessential, hides serious inconsistencies in his epistemology of testimony.
