Knowledge, Virtue, and Action : Putting Epistemic Virtues to Work Hardback
Edited by Tim Henning, David P. Schweikard
This volume brings together recent work by leading and up-and-coming philosophers on the topic of virtue epistemology.
The prospects of virtue-theoretic analyses of knowledge depend crucially on our ability to give some independent account of what epistemic virtues are and what they are for.
The contributions here ask how epistemic virtues matter apart from any narrow concern with defining knowledge; they show how epistemic virtues figure in accounts of various aspects of our lives, with a special emphasis on our practical lives.
In essence, the essays here put epistemic virtues to work.
