Sources of Expertiseveryard projects > knowledge and intelligence > expertise > sources
But where does this knowledge come from? One source of knowledge is
what is sometimes called Ex Cathedra. This corresponds to authority/hierarchical
trust. But we may prefer to rely on other sources of knowledge.
A key question is the legitimization of knowledge. For some reason,
we seem to trust people who are well-known. And the article ends: "The
less value we give to the internal process of learning, the more we expect
knowledge to be provided to us from the outside."

We have seen government scientists in their white coats, insisting that
it was impossible for humans to be affected by BSE-infected meat, that
epidemics from foot-and-mouth to SARS were completely under control, and
that the MMR vaccine was completely safe. Once we start to distrust any
of these claims, we are liable to distrust all of them equally.
