Intellectual honesty

From Issuepedia


Intellectual honesty is a form of honesty. At a minimum, it requires both of the following:

  • being honest to others about your thinking (e.g. your real reasons for holding a particular position)
  • being honest with yourself about what the available evidence indicates

It is possible to be honest without being intellectually honest.



  • Wikipedia
  • Conservapedia defines it as "willingness to advocate positions one knows to be correct, even when expression of those positions is unpopular or could lead to negative consequences for the expresser" -- which is one consequence, but not the whole thing.
