Book Reviews:Intellectual Virtues: An Essay in Regulative Epistemology [Book Review]

Ethics 119 (2):377-382 (2009)
Abstract
This book is a major contribution to a growing literature in character-based or responsibilist epistemology. One point I criticize is the author's claim that intellectual virtues must be “indexed to world views” (318) which is line-drawing maneuver that would remove religious beliefs deemed basic in a given tradition from rational criticism. Still, the overall effect of the authors’ regulative epistemology is nevertheless to put religious believers and secularists, and again Christian and non-Christian faith traditions, on a far better path towards mutual understanding and respect.
