Ernest Sosa extends his distinctive approach to epistemology, intertwining issues concerning the role of the will in judgment and belief with issues of epistemic evaluation. While noting that human knowledge trades on distinctive psychological capacities, Sosa also emphasizes the role of the social in human knowledge.

Miriam Schleifer Mccormick, Mind Given Sosa's broad aim, his book covers a lot of ground. The discussions of particular issues will appeal to those interested in those particular topics, and the chapters, on the whole, are self-contained, some being reprints of earlier articles. But, throughout, one finds interconnected and re-emerging themes that are of central importance to all those interested in the nature of belief and knowledge, the nature and extent of epistemic agency, and philosophical
methodology. Having Sosa's carefully and forcefully argued views on these topics is most welcome.

Jason Baehr, Philosophical Studies Judgment and Agency reads like a product of sustained, penetrating philosophical reflection by one of the great minds in the field, which, to my mind, is precisely what it is.

Hilary Kornblith, Philosophical Studies Ernest Sosa's new book, Judgment and Agency, is a terrific piece of philosophizing. It develops Sosa's virtue epistemology well beyond his earlier work, and it sets it in a broader framework.

Matthew McGrath, The Philosophical Review This is a book one will want to return to many times. It is not breezy, easily digested philosophy. But it more than repays careful study. It is a major achievement for epistemology, a comprehensive and profound account of knowledge, informed by the history of the subject as well as by recent trends.

Ram Neta, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Online This book is both monumentally important and largely successful.

Duncan Pritchard, The Journal of Philosophy ...[A]n incredibly important work of contemporary epistemology.... not merely an incremental extension of Sosa's previous work.... a high-water mark as regards scholarship in this area. Anyone serious about epistemology ought to read this book.
