Abstract

Epistemic injustice has become a hot topic in philosophical debates recently, reminding us that little attention has been paid to the consequences in our societies when epistemic injustice occurs. Given that epistemic injustice shapes and informs human action, its impact expands beyond the economy and politics of knowledge. Epistemic injustice plays a role in ethical decision making and thus the social harmony of our societies. To marginalize and silence voices in the name of lack of credibility, lack of conceptual resources and lack of intellectual ability is not synonymous with ethical practice and democratic institutions.
