Because so much is said about virtue ethics elsewhere in this volume, we propose to leave general discussion of the nature of virtue ethics largely to one side and to focus, rather, on bringing the reader up to speed on virtue epistemology. Thus, the first section will say something about the recent revival of both virtue ethics and virtue epistemology, and the two sections that follow will describe, respectively, the contemporary scene in virtue epistemology and the historical background of virtue epistemology. The final two sections will discuss some important disanalogies between contemporary virtue epistemology and contemporary virtue ethics and attempt to lay out some new possibilities of bringing the two virtue approaches closer together.
