Linda Trinkaus Zagzebski
Linda Trinkaus Zagzebski (born 1946) is an American philosopher, and is Kingfisher College Chair of Philosophy of Religion and Ethics at the University of Oklahoma. She is a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow.
Zagzebski is a pioneer in the field of virtue epistemology. In Virtues of the Mind (1996), she sets out to solve certain problems in modern epistemology by developing an Aristotelian version of virtue theory, and in the course of this project she lays out a general analysis of virtue. In Divine Motivation Theory (2004) she deals extensively with problems in the relationship between reason, faith, and ethics .
Her research in recent years has consisted of topics such as the intersection of ethics and epistemology, religious epistemology, religious ethics, virtue theory, and the varieties of fatalism. She has been invited to deliver the Wilde Lectures in Natural Religion at Oxford University in the Spring of 2010.
