Caring : an essay in the philosophy of ethics by Stan van Hooft( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a model of human agency and motivation in order to argue that ethics is based upon our ontological nature as human beings. The central thesis of this book is that caring is a primordial structure of human existence that takes two forms: caring for self and caring for others. This dual form of caring is expressed in a variety of ways and functions at four levels: (1) a biological level, at which caring is expressed as instincts for survival and nurturing; (2) a perceptual, reactive level, at which caring is expressed as emotion and as cultural constructions of our world; (3) an evaluative, proactive level, at which caring is expressed as pragmatic projects and social forms of solidarity; and (4) a spiritual level, at which caring is expressed as religion, ethics, and morality. From this analysis, author Stan van Hooft concludes that traditional notions of morality as obligatory should give way to an understanding of ethics as the social forms given to our caring for ourselves and others. In addition to presenting discussions in professional philosophy, van Hooft hopes to reach readers working in caring professions such as health, social work, and education, in order that such workers might feel less bound by a rule-governed conception of morality
Cosmopolitanism : a philosophy for global ethics by Stan van Hooft( Book )

25 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book does not aim to impart factual information about global issues or to offer prescriptions for the solution of global problems. Rather, it highlights the ethical issues inherent in them and identifies the moral obligations that individuals, multinational corporations and governments might have in relation to them.While espousing a cosmopolitan form of global ethics, a liberal form of politics, sustainable and just forms of business practice, and an internationalist approach to global conflict and governance, it seeks to present as many sides of the ethical debates as can be supported by reasonable argument. Discussing the work of Kwame Anthony Appiah, Seyla Benhabib, Martha Nussbaum, Thomas Pogge, John Rawls, Amartya Sen, Henry Shue, Peter Singer and others, this book provides a clear and accessible survey of cosmopolitanism and analyses the reality of the rights and responsibilities that it espouses

The handbook of virtue ethics by Stan van Hooft( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virtue ethics has emerged as a distinct field within moral theory - whether as an alternative account of right action or as a conception of normativity which departs entirely from the obligatoriness of morality - and has proved itself invaluable to many aspects of contemporary applied ethics. Virtue ethics now flourishes in philosophy, sociology and theology and its applications extend to law, politics and bioethics. 'The handbook of virtue ethics' brings together leading international scholars to provide an overview of the field. Each chapter summarizes and assesses the most important work on a particular topic and sets this work in the context of historical developments. Taking a global approach by embracing a variety of major cultural traditions along with the Western, the handbook maps the emergence of virtue ethics and provides a framework for future developments
