Attention to Ordinary Others: Care, Vulnerability, and Human Security

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Ethics of Care, Ordinary Language Philosophy, Attention, Vulnerability, Human Security.

The article aims at rethinking the ethics of care in the light of the necessity of a transformation of ethics and a redefinition of moral life pressed by the perspective of Wittgenstein's thought and the tradition of ordinary language philosophy. By proposing to valorize conditions like caring and attention to others, the ethics of care has greatly contributed to modifying a dominant conception of ethics. In so doing, it has also helped to face questions in political theory and especially the issues around security and vulnerability in the light of the notions of attention, care, and importance which go unseen in traditional theories of justice.
