The world of care
Three essays in moral psychology

Why is care work such fertile ground for moral questions? What can social psychology bring to ethical debate? In what way can moral philosophy refresh the way psychologists listen? Can they change the way they understand the concerns of the ordinary world? How can scholarly discourse not stifle different voices in ethics? Based on studies conducted in the field of nanomedicine research, geriatric care, and women's experiences of violence, this book offers a reading of "what matters" for those involved in a care relationship. The prerequisites for identifying with the other, or the impossibility of imagining oneself in his place, are a thread which runs through reflection which focuses in turn on moral anguish, racism and social contempt, and the relationship between care for oneself and care for others.
