Reliability Definition: Can be trusted to do something.

Etymology of 'Reliability'
REly: early 14c., "to gather, assemble" (transitive and intransitive), from Old French relier "assemble, put together; fasten, attach, rally, oblige," from Latin religare "fasten, bind fast," from re-, intensive prefix, + ligare "to bind". Sense of "depend, trust" is from 1570s, perhaps via notion of "rally to, fall back on." Typically used with on, perhaps by influence of lie.

How Can I Be Trusted?: A Virtue Theory of Trustworthiness (Feminist Constructions)
by Nancy Nyquist PotterSearch for Nancy Nyquist Potter
$37.00
$0.98 new/used

This work examines the concept of trust in the light of virtue theory, and takes our responsibility to be trustworthy as central. Rather than thinking of trust as risk-taking, Potter views it as equally a matter of responsibility-taking. How Can I Be Trusted? illustrates that relations of trust are never independent from considerations of power, and that the trustee has a moral obligation not to exploit the vulnerability of the trusting person. Asking ourselves what we can do to be trustworthy allows us to move beyond adversarial trust relationships and toward a more democratic, just, and peaceful society.

Learning the Virtues: That Lead You to God
by Romano GuardiniSearch for Romano Guardini
$14.95
$5.78 new/used

There's more to goodness than keeping the Commandments: you've got to cultivate virtue, too, so that you please God in what you do not merely in what you don t do. In these pages, you'll learn countless ways to grow in such virtue.

The wise Msgr. Romano Guardini, a German priest hailed by Pope Benedict XVI as a great figure who aspired to the truth of God and to the truth of man, leads you from a consideration of virtue in itself to a discussion of each of the key virtues that will make you holy and lead you to God.

Here you'll learn how to begin practicing the virtues and make them part of your daily routine. You'll also learn about:


  • Envy, the hidden sin, even in the spiritually mature: how to fight it
  • Courtesy: how good manners are spiritually vital to souls
  • "What is truth?" The surprising answer to Pilate's question will transform you
  • Patience: it's the prerequisite for all moral growth, and only the morally strong attain it
  • Orderliness: not a moral virtue in itself, but lack of it may cost your soul
  • Why a sense of humor is so important even to your spiritual health
  • The strange contradiction in blaming God for the evil in the world
  • Belief in progress: in our day it can be a form of idolatry
  • The tyranny of justice: why so many justice movements turn unjust (knowing this is the key to our future as a society)
  • Asceticism: it's not just for monks without it, you may not be saved!
  • Trashy movies: there's spiritual danger even in the ones that don't obviously glorify sin
  • Discover why noise weakens the soul, and how silence is balm for your spiritual life
  • Plus: many other topics to help you grow in the virtues that lead you to God!

    A Virtue Epistemology: Apt Belief and Reflective Knowledge, Volume I
    by Ernest SosaSearch for Ernest Sosa
    $27.95
    $19.33 new/used

    A Virtue Epistemology presents a new approach to some of the oldest and most gripping problems of philosophy, those of knowledge and skepticism. Ernest Sosa argues for two levels of knowledge, the animal and the reflective, each viewed as a distinctive human accomplishment. By adopting a kind of virtue epistemology in line with the tradition found in Aristotle, Aquinas, Reid, and especially Descartes, he presents an account of knowledge which can be used to shed light on different varieties of skepticism, the nature and status of intuitions, and epistemic normativity.

    Intelligent Virtue
    by Julia AnnasSearch for Julia Annas
    $39.95
    $23.74 new/used

    Intelligent Virtue presents a distinctive new account of virtue and happiness as central ethical ideas. Annas argues that exercising a virtue involves practical reasoning of a kind which can illuminatingly be compared to the kind of reasoning we find in someone exercising a practical skill. Rather than asking at the start how virtues relate to rules, principles, maximizing, or a final end, we should look at the way in which the acquisition and exercise of virtue can be seen to be in many ways like the acquisition and exercise of more mundane activities, such as farming, building or playing the piano. This helps us to see virtue as part of an agent's happiness or flourishing, and as constituting (wholly, or in part) that happiness. We are offered a better understanding of the relation between virtue as an ideal and virtue in everyday life, and the relation between being virtuous and doing the right thing.

    Current Controversies in Virtue Theory (Current Controversies in Philosophy)
    $34.95
    $28.90 new/used

    Virtue is among the most venerable concepts in philosophy, and has recently seen a major revival. However, new challenges to conceptions of virtue have also arisen. In Current Controversies in Virtue Theory, five pairs of cutting-edge philosophers square off over central topics in virtue theory: the nature of virtue, the connection between virtue and flourishing, the connection between moral and epistemic virtues, the way in which virtues are acquired, and the possibility of attaining virtue. Mark Alfano guides his readers through these essays (all published here for the first time), with a synthetic introduction, succinct abstracts of each debate, suggested further readings and study questions for each controversy, and a list of further controversies to be explored.
