Virtue epistemologists deploy the resources of virtue theory to explain epistemological properties and concepts, just as virtue ethicists do for ethical properties and concepts. Virtue epistemologists claim a great many virtues for their approach, including the ability to bypass longstanding debates, answer perennial epistemological questions, solve epistemological puzzles, provide an elegant and principled account of epistemic value, and broaden epistemology’s scope.
