Can shu be the one word that serves as the guiding principle of caring actions?

Philosophy East and West 50 (4):507-524 (2000)
It is argued that shu involves one's identification with another person while one criticizes the latter's perspective based on one's own. A mechanism is proposed for developing this sort of critique, based on some significant Confucian values. Finally, shu is applied to the context of caring actions, and it is shown how it can help to solve some of the problems arising in caring for others
