Title: David Bronstein (Georgetown/UNSW)
Title: Aristotle’s Virtue Epistemology
Abstract: Neo-Aristotelian virtue theorists typically argue that acts get  
their moral and epistemic worth from the capacities from which they issue:  
an action is morally right because it issues from moral virtue; a true  
belief is justified, and counts as an instance of knowledge, because it  
issues from intellectual virtue. Some philosophers have recently argued  
that Aristotle is not a neo-Aristotelian virtue ethicist. In this paper I  
argue that he is not a neo-Aristotelian virtue epistemologist. This is  
because he reverses the direction of analysis common in contemporary virtue  
theories: it’s not that a cognitive act is knowledge because it issues from  
a capacity that constitutes an intellectual virtue; it’s rather that a  
capacity constitutes an intellectual virtue because it issues in cognitive  
acts that are knowledge. I argue that Aristotle’s ‘act-based’ virtue  
epistemology is an interesting alternative to current ‘agent-based’ views.
