Abstract

This paper explores the variety and normative foundations of intellectual virtues. Although it does not provide a virtue-theoretic account of knowledge or justification, it indicates in detail how knowledge and justification may be crucial for understanding intellectual virtues. Some of these virtues are in a certain way based on knowledge, whereas others are based in a certain way on justification. But there are still others, such as creativity, that have a more complicated basis. In the light of the cases examined, the paper provides a partial account of intellectual virtue.
