Ethics of care at Frankfurter Buchmesse!

19-10-2016 - 23-10-2016

New book on care ethics

A collection of articles by European care ethicists just came out, published in German by Campus Verlag / Frankfurt am Main:
Elisabeth Conradi, Frans Vosman. Praxis der Achtsamkeit. Schlüsselbegriffe der Care-Ethik

From Oct. 19-23, 2016 the famous Frankfurter Buchmesse will take place and this book will be presented there. Several care ethicists from all over Europe contributed, like Sandra Laugier, Marian Barnes and Andries Baart, next to German scholars like Jorma Heier, Christina Schüess and Helen Kohlen. So contributions, all-in-all 22,  from England, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium and Germany are included. The backdrop of the book is that care ethics is a political ethical theory, interdisciplinary, nurtured by feminist thought, both ethically and epistemologically innovative. The case for qualitative empirical ethics is made as a necessary counterpart to conceptual research. Care ethical concepts like vulnerability and relational responsability are explained, and reflected upon in a critical way. By several authors the question is raised whether renewal of care ethics is needed and possible.
