This reality reflects the current disjointed state of trust research, and is widely acknowledged as being a very real obstacle to aligning, unifying, and progressing trust research.
This project aims to fill this research gap by proposing a grand unified theory of trust (GUToT) incorporating an integrated epistemology, ontology, and axiology of trust.
Theoretically, this GUToT will make a positive contribution to the trust research field (and many others) by delivering a definition, mechanism, and measure of trust which is universally generalizable according to abductive, deductive, and inductive logic.
Practically, this project will facilitate wider creation of trust via abductive mechanisms, consolidation of trust via deductive mechanisms, and enhancement of trust via inductive mechanisms.
