Ernest Sosa's views on testimony and testimonial knowledge are rich, insightful, and subtle and have been developed in a number of papers and chapters spanning over 20 years. He has made important contributions to many of the central debates in this area of philosophy, but here I will limit my discussion to only three of them. I should say at the outset that though there is much that I agree with in Sosa's writings, I will focus mostly on our areas of disagreement in what follows.
