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.
