Caring democracy : markets, equality, and justice by Joan C Tronto( )

16 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Americans now face a caring deficit: there are simply too many demands on people's time for us to care adequately for our children, elderly people, and ourselves.At the same time, political involvement in the United States is at an all-time low, and although political life should help us to care better, people see caring as unsupported by public life and deem the concerns of politics as remote from their lives. Caring Democracy argues that we need to rethink American democracy, as well as our fundamental values and commitments, from a caring perspective. The idea that production and economic life are the most important political and human concerns ignores the reality that caring, for ourselves and others, should be the highest value that shapes how we view the economy, politics, and institutions such as schools and the family. Care is at the center of our human lives, but Tronto argues it is currently too far removed from the concerns of politics. Caring Democracy traces the reasons for this disconnection and argues for the need to make care, not economics, the central concern of democratic political life"--provided by publisher

32 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work contests the association of care with women alone as empirically and historically inaccurate, as well as politically unwise. It goes on to illustrate the ways in which society degrades the importance of caring in order to maintain the power of those who are privileged

Le risque ou le care? by Joan Tronto( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Réflexion sur le concept de "vulnérabilité", notion renvoyant aux valeurs de prévenance, de responsabilité ou d'attention éducative, traditionnellement associées aux précaires et aux exclus du monde néolibéral.

Moral boundaries redrawn : the significance of Joan Tronto's argument for political theory, professional ethics, and care as practice by Gert Olthuis( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joan Tronto's Moral Boundaries. A political Argument for an Ethic of Care (1993) is one of the most influential works in the short history of the ethics of care. In her book Tronto rethinks 'care' as one of the central activities of human life and explains that it is shaped through politics. Since it is two decades ago that Moral Boundaries was published it seems more than worthwhile to take stock

Confini morali : un argomento politico per l'etica della cura by Joan C Tronto( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in Italian and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dopo aver offerto una ricostruzione storico-culturale del processo che ha portato all'esclusione della cura dalla sfera pubblica e alla segregazione delle donne nella sfera privata con l'emergere, nel '700, d'un insieme di confini morali che escludono dalla considerazione politica l'attenzione alla fragilità dell'esistenza umana, Tronto passa a una valutazione della società contemporanea, a suo parere colpevole di una ripartizione asimmetrica degli oneri di cura, che asserve il lavoro di alcune persone - in genere le donne e le minoranze - al soddisfacimento dei bisogni altrui. L'autrice s'oppone all'idea tipica del cosiddetto femminismo culturale che la cura sia espressione d'una moralità essenzialmente femminile. Al contrario, una società democratica, che voglia trattare ogni persona con eguale considerazione e rispetto, deve porre un'etica della cura al centro della teoria e dell'azione politica

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

There is an alternative: homines curans and the limits of neoliberalism( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Neoliberal policies around the globe have made caring more difficult. Yet, many scholars seem to have accepted neoliberalism as an inescapable reality. This article argues against this view. Instead, it suggests that care stands as a major alternative way to the neoliberal paradigm, both conceptually and historically. Formulating a conceptual account of people as homines curans (caring people) and drawing upon Polanyi's history of market ideologies, the article argues that a democratic form of care - which makes the reallocation of care responsibilities its central concern - can provide the basis for a theoretical challenge to neoliberalism
