Epistemic Life of Groups, Hardback (March 2016)
Groups engage in epistemic activity all the time, from the collective inquiry of scientific researchers to the deliberations of juries. Yet there is still relatively little philosophical work on collective epistemology. Eleven new essays explore this practice and its relation to epistemology, political philosophy, ethics, and philosophy of science.

Epistemology as it has traditionally been pursued has been impoverished by the lack of any theoretical framework conducive to revealing the ethical and political aspects of our epistemic conduct. Miranda Fricker shows that virtue epistemology provides a general epistemological idiom in which these issues can be fruitfully and forcefully discussed.
