This volume deals with epistemic virtues from history of the humanities, philosophical, media-, and literary studies perspectives. A focal point is the relationship between scientific and socio-cultural or moral norms.
Epistemic virtues are qualities of the researching subject that are viewed in epistemic cultures as a requirement for the production, mediation, or acquisition of knowledge. They cannot be reduced to an abstract ought, as ethics commissions or political movements often bring to the attention of the humanities. The methodological generation of knowledge would hardly be possible if there were not cognitive virtues such as patience, awareness, precision, intuition, truthfulness, curiosity, rigor, or reliability to stabilize the precarious process of knowledge procurement and guide it in a certain direction. This volume deals with epistemic virtues from history of the humanities, philosophical, media-, and literary studies perspectives. A focal point is the relationship between scientific and socio-cultural or moral norms.
