Ernest Sosa's work in epistemology has frequently progressed through careful examination of key moments in the history of philosophy. Here I examine some of the most important cases in which this is so, including his introduction of virtues into epistemology and his reason for adding the subject's perspective to externalism. I especially focus on the way Sosa adapts the structure of Descartes's epistemology for his own externalist, virtue theoretic answer to skepticism.
