Pettersen exposes several misconceptions of Gilligan's work.

Der Spruch "yes, we care" zeigt: Gesellschaftlich gibt es ein großes Interesse an Achtsamkeit, Sorge und Verantwortung. Dennoch lässt die philosophische Ethik diese scheinbar privaten Themen meist unberücksichtigt. Das Buch eröffnet neue Perspektiven, indem es die in verschiedenen europäischen Ländern entwickelte Ethik der Achtsamkeit und Sorge - "Ethics of Care" - transdisziplinär präsentiert. Im Zentrum stehen die Fragen, wie Versorgung gelingend zu gestalten ist und wie der Umgang mit menschlicher Verletzbarkeit und Abhängigkeit unser politisches Zusammenleben bestimmt. Mit Beiträgen unter anderem von Marian Barnes, Sophie Bourgault, Mieke Grypdonck, Helen Kohlen, Sandra Laugier, Christoph Rehmann- Sutter, Andrew Sayer, Christina Schües, Hilal Sezgin und Helena Sensöta.

The Ethics of Care

Virginia Held assesses the ethics of care as a promising alternative to the familiar moral theories that serve so inadequately to guide our lives. The ethics of care is only a few decades old, yet it is by now a distinct moral theory or normative approach to the problems we face. It is relevant to global and political matters as well as to the personal relations that can most clearly exemplify care. This book clarifies just what the ethics of care is: what its characteristics are, what it holds, and what it enables us to do. It discusses the feminist roots of this moral approach and why the ethics of care can be a morality with universal appeal. Held examines what we mean by "care," and what a caring person is like. Where other moral theories demand impartiality above all, the ethics of care understands the moral import of our ties to our families and groups. It evaluates such ties, focusing on caring relations rather than simply on the virtues of individuals. The book proposes how such values as justice, equality, and individual rights can "fit together" with such values as care, trust, mutual consideration, and solidarity. In the second part of the book, Held examines the potential of the ethics of care for dealing with social issues. She shows how the ethics of care is more promising than Kantian moral theory and utilitarianism for advice on how expansive, or not, markets should be, and on when other values than market ones should prevail. She connects the ethics of care with the rising interest in civil society, and considers the limits appropriate for the language of rights. Finally, she shows the promise of the ethics of care for dealing with global problems and seeing anew the outlines of international civility.

Mit Schärfe und Ironie schildert Simone de Beauvoir die Gesellschaft der Neureichen, in der Gefühle zu Werbespots werden. Die Menschen dieses Romans ersticken an den Lügen und Heucheleien der spätkapitalistischen Welt, beherrscht von Statussymbolen, von «schönen Bildern».

This book addresses a variety of ethical issues that arise in the care of oncology patients. Many volumes have been written on medical ethics in the past 30 years. However, few have focused on ethical issues specific to the care of cancer patients. This book brings together such a focused examination. The contributors are experienced clinicians, ethicists, medical humanists, and medical educators. The issues raised have direct relevance to the care of oncology patients in treatment as well as research settings. The chapters address issues that are central to contemporary medical practice and medical ethics inquiry. Any practicing clinician will be well aware of the problems of communication and how uncertainty, cross-cultural issues, and religious influences can impact patient care. The limits of care and the role of advance directives and palliative care are common issues that must be addressed in treating patients at the end of life. For oncologists and oncology patients, participation in clinical trials may be a thomy topic, especially when phase I clinical trials are being considered. The impact of managed care and reimbursement issues cannot be avoided in the contemporary patient care and similarly cannot be neglected when considering the ethical ramifications raised. No discussion of ethics in oncology can be complete without attention to the specific challenges raised by the pediatric patient with cancer. All of these topics are explored by the contributors to this book.

In Caring, Peta Bowden extends and challenges recent debates on feminist ethics. She takes issue with accounts of the ethics of care that focus on alleged principles of caring rather than analysing caring in practice. Caring, Bowden argues, must be understood by 'working through examples'. Following this approach, Bowden explores four main caring practices: mothering, friendship, nursing and citizenship. Her analysis of the differences and similarities in these practices - their varying degrees of intimacy and reciprocity, formality and informality, vulnerability and choice - reveals the practical complexity of the ethics of care. Caring recognizes that ethical practices constantly outrun the theories that attempt to explain them, and Bowden's unique approach provides major new insights into the nature of care without resorting to indiscriminate unitary models. It will be essential reading for all those interested in ethics, gender studies, nursing and the caring professions.
