Last year I said, in response to someone who seemed to be using the concepts of “privilege” and “epistemic injustice” without understanding them:

Being slightly familiar with the literature whose terms you’re using and using those terms properly isn’t a form of privilege, even if people who don’t do it tend to get marginalized and dismissed.

I didn’t expect this to be controversial! Or, perhaps less tendentiously, what does Schwenkler mean by “privilege” here?
