Virtues of the Mind: An Inquiry Into the Nature of Virtue and the Ethical Foundations of Knowledge
Zagzebski, L. T. Virtues of the Mind: An Inquiry Into the Nature of Virtue and the Ethical Foundations of Knowledge. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 1996.
"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."
