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.
