“No Cross-Cultural Differences in Gettier Car Case Intuition: A Replication Study of Weinberg et al. 2001,” by Minsun Kim & Yuan Yuan is available here. Abstract:  In “Normativity and Epistemic Intuitions” (2001), Weinberg, Nichols and Stich famously argue from empirical data that East Asians and Westerners have different intuitions about Gettier-style cases. We attempted to replicate their study about the Car case, but failed to detect a cross-cultural difference. Our study used the same methods and case taken verbatim, but sampled an East Asian population 2.5 times greater than NEI’s 23 participants. We found no evidence supporting the existence of cross-cultural difference about the intuition concerning the Gettier car case. Taken together with the failures of both of the existing replication studies (Seyedsayamdost 2014; Nagel 2013), our results provide strong evidence that the purported cross-cultural difference in Gettier intuitions does not exist.
