Virtues of the Mind: An Inquiry Into the Nature of Virtue and the Ethical Foundations of Knowledge

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Sep 13, 1996 - Philosophy - 365 pages
Almost all theories of knowledge and justified belief employ moral concepts and forms of argument borrowed from moral theories, but none of them pay attention to the current renaissance in virtue ethics. This remarkable book is the first attempt to establish a theory of knowledge based on the model of virtue theory in ethics. The book develops the concept of an intellectual virtue, and then shows how the concept can be used to give an account of the major concepts in epistemology, including the concept of knowledge.
