Example text

Noddings is also deliberate in her differentiation of caring about and caring for. She is careful to say that caring about is insufficient to constitute an ethic of care unless it is accompanied by the concrete, specific, and responsible action of caring for that result in enhancing the well-being of the other. Both are integral to an ethic of care. In so doing, Noddings anticipates, or perhaps sets the stage for, Tronto’s (1993) position that an ethic of care is both disposition and practice and Held’s (2006) statement that an ethic of care is both value and practice.

The one caring must demonstrate and cultivate the characteristics of devotion, constancy, patience, trust, humility, and courage in himself as well as in the other. Devotion involves the whole person. Constancy requires the continuous involvement with the one cared for although not necessarily in the physical presence of the other. The one caring must also have patience with the one cared for by giving that person the time for realization, insight and communication. Trust (Baier 1994; Govier 1997, 1999) emerges as the relationship deepens but also is found in encouraging the other to discover what it is that contributes to the further development of the one cared for.

Slote points out the key role that imagination (Mills 1959; Greene 1995; Byrne 2005) in general and moral imagination, in particular, (Johnson 1993; Werhane 1999; Fesmire 2003; Kekes 1991, 2006) play in developing humanitarian caring. This development of moral imagination through empathy is not just for the here and now but also through imagining what action(s) to take and how the person might feel if the action(s) takes place as expected. Johnson (1993), Werhane (1999), Fesmire (2003), and Kekes (2006) in particular, emphasize the critical role of moral imagination in identifying with the “others” who have a stake in a given situation requiring moral judgment and in creating morally sound actions to address the situation.
