Until now, ethicists have said little about the body, limiting
their comments on it to remarks made in passing or, at best,
devoting a chapter to the subject. Embodied Care is the first work
to argue for the body's centrality to care ethics, doing so by
analyzing our corporeality at the phenomenological level. It
develops the idea that our bodies are central to our morality,
paying particular attention to the ways we come to care for one
another._x000B__x000B_Hamington's argues that human bodies are
built to care; as a result, embodiment must be recognized as a
central factor in moral consideration. He takes the reader on an
exciting journey from modern care ethics to Merleau-Ponty's
philosophy of the body and then to Jane Addams's social activism
and philosophy. The ideas in Embodied Care do not lead to yet
another competing theory of morality; rather, they progress through
theory and case studies to suggest that no theory of morality can
be complete without a full consideration of the body. _x000B_
