Epistemology: 10. Virtue Epistemology

In this Wireless Philosophy video, Geoff Pynn (Northern Illinois) introduces virtue epistemology, an approach to epistemology that takes intellectual virtue as the central concept in discussions of theory of knowledge.  Along the way, he shows how virtue epistemology can provides interesting solutions to some of the problems that we’ve encountered so far in the series.
