Beyond autonomy: a relational perspective on an Ethics of Care
While many contemporary normative approaches start with an autonomous subject, the ethics of care draws on an interactive practice. This lecture explores the ethics of care as addressing voluntary communicative as well as supportive interactivities and focuses on the quality of these interactions. The ethics of care calls into question how listening, support, or assistance are carried out and reflects on its societal and political conditions.
