It is high time for both ethicists and epistemologists to directly engage with each other. By bringing together each discipline's knowledge and perspective, relative to understanding the nature of intellectual virtues and vices, progress in answering some of epistemology's and ethics' vexing questions and disputes can be advanced. When epistemologists and ethicists analyze the nature and scope that intellectual virtues such as intellectual carefulness, thoroughness, humility, courage, autonomy, and fairness have on their disciplines, a deeper understanding of how humans form beliefs and conduct their moral lives surfaces. Because much of the work on intellectual virtues branches out into distinct historical, ethical, and epistemological projects, there is a lack of interdisciplinary participation amongst scholars. This book provides a remedy to this problem by bringing together historians, ethicists, and epistemologists into direct conversation with each other. The result of this unifying effort is an edited volume of essays written by some of the leading scholars in epistemology and ethics.
