On November 6th 2015 professor Fabienne Brugère of the University of Paris was interviewed by our editor Tessa Smorenburg. They talked about burning issues in ethics of care and the Brugère’s views on the value of emotions, and how this relates to care. This interview was written in co-operation with Brugère’s publisher, Libraire Mollat.
The interview covers tree topics in the ethics of care, as identified by Fabienne Brugère: the notion of care and democracy, care for the increasingly large amount of elderly people, and equality of treatment in general care. Then, she’ll explain her position on the value of emotions in care. And to conclude, Brugère shares her view on a central issue in the discussion of ethics of care in France: “How do we relate to one another?”.
