Ethics of Care and Concept of Jen: A Reply to Chenyang Li

Hypatia 17 (1):107-129 (2002)

Abstract

This comparative study of the ethics of care and the Confucian concept of jen argue against two assumptions made by Chenyang Li in his own study of these two traditions. Against him, I argue that a “feminine” morality is not adequate to address human equality, and that care-orientated theories like jen and care seem incompatible with the feminist commitment to oppose the subjection of women.
