Trust is pervasive in our lives. Both our simplest actions—like buying a coffee, or crossing the street—as well as the functions of large collective institutions—like those of corporations and nation states—would not be possible without it. Yet, only in the last several decades has trust started to receive focused attention from philosophers as a specific topic of investigation. The Routledge Handbook of Trust and Philosophy brings together 31 never before published chapters, accessible for both students and researchers, created to cover the most salient topics in the various theories of trust. The Handbook is broken up into three sections:

I. What is Trust?

II. Whom to Trust?

III. Trust in Knowledge, Science, and Technology

The Handbook is preceded by a foreword by Maria Baghramian, an introduction by volume editor Judith Simon, and each chapter includes a bibliography and cross-references to other entries in the volume.
