Sample text

This has resulted in a repetitive effect, which may seem tiresome, but which, in my opinion, is necessary because the value of the ethics of care can only be argued in context. Moreover, this approach makes it possible to read each chapter on its own. As my thoughts have developed I have begun to describe the ethics of care more and more as a moral vocabulary. This makes it possible, I hope, to formulate its content more systematically and to assess more effectively its capacity to expose and express social problems and to make them available for judgement.

10 This allows us to foreground aspects of perception and interpretation in studies of the ethics of care and to investigate the ‘HAS HEAD, HANDS, FEET AND HEART’ 23 constructions of meanings of care and human agency in this field. Perceptions of people’s need of care are not directly determined by those needs themselves or by any ‘necessity’. They are mediated by the language in which we talk about them and by the vocabularies deemed applicable to care practices. They are also marked by the psychological and emotional dispositions of those involved and by their psychodynamic interaction patterns (Benjamin 1988; Flax 1993).

In this way we can also reflect on the question of how to revalue care in a more general sense (Sevenhuijsen 1993b). From this perspective, the fact that women’s narratives can play an important role might have less to do with their author’s gender than with the social ‘HAS HEAD, HANDS, FEET AND HEART’ 25 positions in which women find themselves, partly because of their gender. It is striking that women’s gendered identities in this respect are so often seen as an admission of weakness and set against the idea of liberation through employment and ‘equal rights’.
