In his contribution, Ernest Sosa tries to integrate responsibilist elements into the heart of his reliabilist virtue epistemology. He distinguishes between character virtues, which he deems peripheral or auxiliary, and agential competences, which he deems necessary for high-grade reflective knowledge. In doing so, Sosa distinguishes between dispositions whose exercise enables knowledge (e.g., Baehr's responsibilist virtues) and those whose exercise constitutes knowledge. The latter are in "the charmed inner circle for traditional epistemology" because their manifestation in the correctness of a belief "constitutes a bit of knowledge," whereas the former are beyond the pale of this charmed inner circle because their manifestation merely helps to "put you in a position to know" (emphasis in original).
