Bringing up epistemological reliabilism theory based on virtue, Linda Zagzebski tries to solve the conflict between internalist and externalist epistemological theories. She has used the main components of Aristotle's virtue-oriented moral theory such as moral and intellectual virtues and vices, conscience and affection to solve the conflict. Virtue-based reliabilism theory resembles internalist theories in terms of obtaining the components of the task orientation, determination orientation and awareness of subject in knowledge. Its common feature with externalist theories is its attention to causal effect of factors out of belief on the formation of the belief. It has been successful to solve the conflict to some extent.
