Relation, Virtue, and Relational Virtue: Three Concepts of Caring

Hypatia 22 (3):92-110 (2007)
  Copy   BIBTEX

Abstract

This essay breaks new ground in defending the view that contemporary care-based ethics and early Confucian ethics share some important common ground. Luo also introduces the notion of relational virtue in an attempt to bridge a conceptual gap between relational caring ethics and agent-based virtue ethics, and to make the connections between the ethics of care and Confucian ethics philosophically clearer and more defensible.
