California State University, Fullerton

Keynote speakers include Linda Zagzebski and Roger Crisp and several other
paper presenters. The goal of this conference is to address several key
questions at the intersection of ethics, epistemology, and virtue theory: .e.g,
What are the primary features of moral virtues (e.g., courage) and vices (e.g.,
cowardice)? What are the primary features of intellectual virtues (e.g.,
open-mindedness) and vices (e.g., dogmatism)? How are the moral and intellectual
virtues (or vices) related to one another? Can one live a good life or attain
knowledge without virtue? How difficult is it to become virtuous or vicious?
