Hardin 2002 (†284)Hardin, Russell. Trust and Trustworthiness. (New York: Russell Sage Foundation, 2002).
- trust (p. 1): One of the most important and commonplace [reasons for thinking someone trustworthy] is trust as encapsulated interest… On this account, I trust you because I think it is in your interest to take my interests in the relevant matter seriously in the following sense: You value the continuation of our relationship, and you therefore have your own interests in taking my interests into account. That is, you encapsulate my interests in your own interests. (†242)
