Review: Some Concerns about Nel Noddings' "Caring" [Book Review]

Hypatia 5 (1):109 - 114 (1990)
Nel Noddings argues that hers is not an ethics of agape. I want to argue, on the contrary, that it is, and that this is a problem. My central thesis is that the unidirectional nature of the analysis of one-caring reinforces oppressive institutions.
