9780739126165: Comprehending Care: Problems and Possibilities in The Ethics of Care

In Comprehending Care, Tove Pettersen subjects the ethics of care, as advanced by Carol Gilligan, to a moral-philosophical examination. More precisely, she extracts the philosophical foundation in this ethics, probes its possible implications for moral theory of a more traditional stamp, and explores its normative plausibility. Pettersen exposes several misconceptions of Gilligan's work.

About the Author:

Tove Pettersen is an assistant professor in the Department of Philosophy, Classics, and History of Art and Ideas, and a post doctor and research leader in the Ethics Programme at the University of Oslo.

Review:

Well-informed and tightly argued, this book helps disentangle, clarify, and resolve many issues hotly contested in the care-versus-justice literature. Pettersen's even-handed and non-ideological discussion shows how philosophical methods and skills can raise the level of debate and thereby open the way toward a synthesis between apparently irreconcilable views. (Thomas Pogge)

There are many things to admire in Pettersen's work....A thorough, comprehensive account....This is a fine work that will enhance any library devoted to contemporary ethics, feminism, and the conjunction of ethics and feminism. (Metapsychology Online Reviews, November 2008)

Carol Gilligan's In a Different Voice is often cited but seldom read, and rarely read carefully. Tove Pettersen offers a fresh and expansive reading of the feminist 'ethic of care' by beginning from Gilligan and pursuing it to contemporary efforts to use care ethics to understand global perspectives. It is an intelligent and innovative reading of this growing tradition. (Joan C. Tronto, Hunter College, The City University of New York)
