Describes prior approaches to a kind of virtue epistemology. Generally these approaches are linked to deontological or consequentialist theories of ethics, rather than aretaic ethics, and often they conceive of intellectual virtues as what might properly be called faculties, such as eyesight or memory.
Shows some issues that aretaic moral theories handle more satisfyingly than act-based theories, and shows parallel problems in belief-based epistemology that are (perhaps) handled better by virtue epistemology.
