Pragmatists Jane Addams and John Dewey Inform the Ethic of Care

Hypatia 8 (2):64 - 77 (1993)

Abstract
Both Jane Addams and John Dewey see human beings as ultimately creative in nature and as radically connected to each other. In this paper I look to these ideas to provide a theoretical model that is able to explain why we are able to extend our care to others outside of our intimate circle of family and friends, and to show us how we can purposefully move to the next higher level of moral reasoning.
