Lecture: ‘Care and justice in society’

On 22 October 2014 prof. Virginia Held (Hunter College, City University of New York, USA) held a lecture entitled ‘Care and justice in society’.

This lecture was part of the seminar series ‘Care practices: towards a re-casting of Ethics’ organised by the University of Oxford.
The ethics of care can be contrasted with the various dominant ethics of justice. When we appropriately attend to the practices and values of care, society looks quite differently from the way it has been conceptualized by moral, political, and legal philosophers associated with the ethics of justice. We can see how we ought not only to apply the requirements of justice to activities of care, but also how society ought to give priority to the values of care.

Like all lectures in this seminar series it is taped.

Next lecture on 29 October 2014: prof. Fabienne Brugère.
