The Inquiring Mind is a new contribution to 'responsibilist' or character-based virtue-epistemology--an approach to epistemology in which intellectual character traits like open-mindedness, fair-mindedness, inquisitiveness, and intellectual courage, rigor, and generosity are given a central and fundamental role. Jason Baehr provides an accessible introduction to virtue epistemology and intellectual virtues. He sheds light on the nature and structure ofintellectual virtues and their role in the cognitive economy, and accounts for the role that reflection on intellectual character virtues should play within epistemology at large. Finally, Baehr examines the relation between intellectual and moral virtues.
