The 11th volume in the Peeters Ethics of Care series is written by Sandra Laugier: Politics of the Ordinary – Care, Ethics and Forms of Life (2020). In the spring of 2019, our editors Tessa Smorenburg and Madzy Dekema, travelled to Paris (FR) to interview her about the book which was also the cornerstone of her key note speech in this year’s conference of the Care Ethics Research Consortium. Her plea is to use ordinary language philosophy as a basis for a re-definition of care ethics and to draw attention to the ordinary life as the focus of care in moral expression.
The edited anthology offers translations of important texts, published by francophone care ethics scholars since the early 2000s. This gives readers a glimpse of the diversity of French-language care scholarship, and its unwavering commitment to showing that care is fundamentally political.
