Virtue and Vice, Moral and Epistemic (1444335626) cover image
Virtue and Vice, Moral and Epistemic presents a series of essays by leading ethicists and epistemologists who offer the latest thinking on the moral and intellectual virtues and vices, the structure of virtue theory, and the connections between virtue and emotion.  
  • Cuts across two fields of philosophical inquiry by featuring a dual focus on ethics and epistemology
  • Features cutting-edge work on the moral and intellectual virtues and vices, the structure of virtue theory, and the connections between virtue and emotion
  • Presents a radical new moral theory that makes exemplars the foundation of ethics; and new theories of epistemic vices such as epistemic malevolence and epistemic self-indulgence
  • Represents one of the few collections to address both the moral virtues and the epistemic virtues
  • Explores a new approach in epistemology - virtue epistemology - which emphasizes the importance of intellectual character traits
