《关怀伦理学》的原文摘录

  • Since even the helpful emotions can often become misguided or worse—as when excessive empathy with others leads to a wrongful degree of self-denial or when benevolent concern crosses over into controlling domination—we need an ethics of care, not just care itself. (查看原文)

  • The ethics of care respects rather than removes itself from the claims of particular others with whom we share actual relationships. (查看原文)

    —— 引自章节:Part 1 Care and Moral Theory
  • The ethics of care is a deep challenge to other moral theories. It takes the experience of women in caring activities such as mothering as central, interprets and emphasizes the values inherent in caring practices, shows the inadequacies of other theories for dealing with the moral aspects of caring activity, and then considers generalizing the insights of caring to other questions of morality.

  • Caring is a relation in which carer and cared-for share an interest in their mutual well being. Care is surely a form of labor, but it is also much more. The labor of care is already relational and for the most part cannot be replaced by machines in the way so much other labor can. (查看原文)

    —— 引自章节:Part 1 Care and Moral Theory
  • The ethics of care, in contrast, conceptualizes persons as deeply affected by, and involved in, relations with others; to many care theorists persons are at least partly constituted by their social ties. The ethics of care attends especially to relations between persons, evaluating such relations and valuing relations of care. It does not assume that relations relevant for morality have been entered into voluntarily by free and equal individuals, as do dominant moral theories. It appreciates as well the values of care between persons of unequal power in unchosen relations such as those between parents and children and between members of social groups of various kinds. To the ethics of care, our embeddedness in familial, social, and historical contexts is basic. (查看原文)

  • A glaring deficiency of the liberal image of the individual citizen is that it abstracts from an interconnected social reality, taking the ideal circumstances of an adult, independent head of a household as paradigmatic and ignoring all the rest. It overlooks the social relations of an economy that makes its members (including heads of household) highly interdependent. (查看原文)

  • “Still, to see human relations in the marketplace as contractual and based on rational self-interest does not clash grossly with our experience of them. Health care and child care, however, are more problematic. Should they be regarded as among the arrangements and services for which free, equal, rational, and autonomous person’s contract? To do so seems questionable, for before any of us can actually become the kind of person liberalism imagines, we have already received many years of child care that has been more than what merely contracted services can provide. Children do not become autonomous rational agents without having been cared for and valued for their own sakes.” (查看原文)

  • Without care there is no society, there are no people. Why should we even look for a basis for morality that disregards care, whether or not Gauthier’s version of such a theory succeeds in its aim? (查看原文)

  • Thinking of society’s members, then, as if they were fully independent, free, and equal rational agents obscures and distorts the condition of vast numbers of them at the very least and has the effect of making it more difficult to address the social and political issues that would be seen as relevant and appropriate if these conditions were more accurately portrayed and kept in view.
