A Virtue Epistemology of Scientific Explanation and Understanding

This submission has open access
Submission Summary
In this paper, I aim to develop a virtue epistemological account of scientific explanation and understanding. In so doing, I build a link between intellectual virtue and scientific explanation through understanding. The central epistemological question I will focus on is how human beings understand the world through scientific explanation. The answer I will give is that our understanding of the world is achieved by the alignment of intellectual virtue and explanation structure.
