Recently, Linda Zagzebski developed an account of cognizers as agents. "An effective agent is reliably successful in reaching her ends and she does so through the exercise of her own power� (Zagzebski 2001, 151). Knowledge is thought of as the result of virtuous agency. Knowledge is a state of true belief arising out of acts of intellectual virtue.
