About the Author

Jason Baehr is an associate professor of philosophy at Loyola Marymount in Los Angeles. He works in the areas of epistemology and virtue theory. He lives with his wife and three children in Long Beach, CA.


`Review from previous edition This is an excellent book. Baehr proposes an interesting and original account of the proper goals of a virtue theory for epistemology and makes substantive progress toward developing a theory of his own. The quality of argument is very high and Baehr's writing is elegant and clear.'
Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
`It makes both a necessary read for the specialist and a suitable text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses. Baehrs gift for exposition allows one easily to grasp the state of various questions; his arguments, while always cogent, seldom aim to be knockdown, leaving much for the next generation of virtue epistemologists to ponder.'
James A. Montmarquet, Ethics
