Based on the analyses of virtue epistemologists who place the open mind as a central epistemic virtue, the article shows the inextricable intertwining between its ethical and epistemic dimensions. Open-mindedness is understood as a virtue according to a fallibilist conception of human experience and knowledge in which the agent's capacity for intervention is emphasized through his dispositions and habits. Finally, the argument leads to an ethical defence of political liberalism
