not yet rated|write a review
A Virtue Epistemology presents a new approach to some of the oldest and most gripping problems of philosophy, those of knowledge and scepticism. Ernest Sosa argues for two levels of knowledge, the animal and the reflective, each viewed as a distinctive human accomplishment. By adopting a kindof virtue epistemology in line with the tradition found in Aristotle, Aquinas, Reid, and especially Descartes, he presents an account of knowledge which can be used to shed light on different varieties of scepticism, the nature and status of intuitions, and epistemic normativity.

Editorial Reviews

Review from previous edition: "If you are interested enough in epistemology to be reading this review, then you must read the marvelous book...While many bits and pieces of Sosa's work are already well known to everyone working in epistemology, they are known primarily through various papersthat Sosa has written, and it is not generally well understood just how the views put forward in those many papers fit together to form a coherent and explanatorily powerful epistemology. Reading this book helps one to understand that." --Ram Neta, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
