In this chapter Greco seeks to demonstrate the best way define and interpret intellectual virtue. He analyzes some recent attempts in philosophy to do so and decides the use of Reliablism is the best method. Having done that he analyzes two important areas in epistemology, Gettier Problem and Skepticism, while demonstrating why the very definition of intellectual knowledge implies that knowledge is more important than true belief.
