Intellectual Virtues

Intellectual Virtues

(p.17) Chapter 2 Intellectual Virtues
The Inquiring Mind

Jason Baehr

Oxford University Press

The introduction to intellectual virtues begun in Chapter 1 is extended in the present chapter. The chapter begins with a classification of intellectual virtues based on ways in which these traits are useful for overcoming various challenges or obstacles internal to the process of inquiry, or an attempt to discover the truth about some matter. It then explores the distinction between intellectual virtues, on the one hand, and intellectual faculties, talents, temperaments, and skills, on the other. It is argued that while intellectual virtues are related to these other qualities in important ways, they are nevertheless distinct from them.

Keywords:   intellectual virtues, classification of intellectual virtues, cognitive faculties, intellectual skills, agency
