"Bowden's appeal is the wealth of case material, carefully assemled from a wide variety of sources, amplifying her objection to any universal conception, along with her methodological demonstration that the supposed impasse created by the false dualism of (postmodern) particularism and (Enlightenment) univeralism is by no means as formidable as is sometimes supposed."
-"Ethics, Place and Environment
"In this finely nuanced book, Peta Bowden develops a picture of caring as the intricate skill and intelligent practice that many feminists have asserted it to be, yet few have demonstrated so well. The writing is consistently excellent, the style accessible, as Bowden moves through an imporessive range of literature to effect innovative connections across caring practices and the ethical issues they invoke."
-Lorraine Code, York University
From the Back Cover
In Caring, Peta Bowden extends and challenges recent debates on feminist ethics.
Top customer reviews
Bowden's notes serve as a comprehensive bibliography to feminist ethics. In the body of the book, each theorist gets credit for insight, but the reader is also warned in each case how the consequences of each contribution may be over-extended.
And Bowden practices what she preaches. There is no bumper sticker summation or neatly figured bottom line. The reader is simply invited to think carefully with Bowden as she turns each new problem under care-ful light. The chapter on citizenship will not lose its visionary quality with age. Quality reading for your best students.
