Abstract / Description of output

This paper offers an overview of a theory of knowledge known as anti-luck virtue epistemology. This is an account of knowledge which combines both an anti-luck condition and a virtue condition, and which is thereby able to avoid problems which face some of the main competing accounts of knowledge, particularly those offered by proponents of robust virtue epistemology. In particular, it is able to accommodate the epistemic dependence of knowledge on external factors, where this has both a positive and a negative aspect. Relatedly, it can also avoid the problem posed by epistemic twin earth cases.
