Save to Library. Is Patriarchy Immoral? This essay considers the arguments according to which patriarchy has been judged immoral by Manne and others. Feminist philosophers have commonly relied on one of two philosophical perspectives to argue against patriarchy: contractarianism and what I call distortionism.
Both perspectives turn out to have significant weaknesses that undercut their ability to inform our judgment about the moral status of patriarchy. Although it seems reasonable to intuit that patriarchy is immoral, contra Manne we are not yet in a position to philosophically support this intuition. Doorway of their own.
This paper examines four talmudic stories that portray women giving food to beggars who come to their doors. This motif represents a distinct female social and ethical perspective that contrasts with and critiques the dominant male This motif represents a distinct female social and ethical perspective that contrasts with and critiques the dominant male rabbinic ethos.
However, The talmudic editors frequently position, interpret and modify such stories in ways that draw attention away from, and even undermine, the female characters and the values they represent.
Nevertheless, these strong female voices and characters are not totally silenced. In her poetry, women are the speakers of a "broken language". For this reason, they are people of a "cold" season, away from the comfort zone of an open communication. In accordance with the climate created by the setting, her language universe dwells in the winter through the use of words like "rain", "cloud", "ice", "cold", "snow", "feel chilly", "mistral. If the subject is assumed to be the poet herself, how she interprets the conflict between sexual identity and society can be understood.
Sezer, who has been forced to live her womanhood like a guest and who feels the uneasiness of self-alienation, builds up a fragmented world. In her poems, mirrors, languages, bicycles are broken; ceilings are cracked; city walls, ships are destroyed; the sky is in pieces.
Especially, the pain of the woman who has to be silent for she cannot express herself, weighs upon the heart of the reader.
Emotional conflicts and memories, the pressures of the patriarchal structure on women, crises created by the inability to cope with the speed of society as a modern woman and the hassle of the race of daily life are among the most important themes in her poetry.
Therefore, the need for personal existence space is presented through some concepts such as language, street, child, dream, mother, father and beloved. These areas of refuge that show 'the back garden' of the woman in 'the back garden of life' are significant. In this chapter relational sociology critiques of methodological individualism and rational action theories are applied specifically to a forceful critique of Enlightenment philosophy conceptualisations of the moral subject and moral The sociological value of recent philosophic attempts to re-conceptualise morality in terms of practices MacIntyre in After Virtue: A Study in Moral Theory.
Providing a theory of moral practice for a contemporary sociological audience, Owen Abbott shows that morality is a relational practice achieved by people in their everyday lives. He moves beyond old dualisms—society versus the He moves beyond old dualisms—society versus the individual, social structure versus agency, body versus mind—to offer a sociologically rigorous and coherent theory of the relational constitution of the self and moral practice, which is both shared and yet enacted from an individualized perspective.
In so doing, The Self, Relational Sociology, and Morality in Practice not only offers an urgently needed account of moral practice and its integral role in the emergence of the self, but also examines morality itself within and through social relations and practices. Creighton, K. The phenomenon of devaluing of self for adolescent girls has been highlighted in previous qualitative research in a US cultural context. Carol Gilligan and her colleagues have documented a loss of connection to self and loss of voice Carol Gilligan and her colleagues have documented a loss of connection to self and loss of voice.
Blending in requires firmer addressing in social and emotional education SEE , especially regarding challenge to self-management as emotional impulse and behaviour regulation. Self-management as blending in risks being a process of loss of voice and alienation of self. Moral theory course syllabus. Carol Gilligan is both a feminist and an ethicist, and she is known also as a feminist ethicist.
In her book, In a Different Voice, she proposes an ethics of care that is female-friendly and female-based, or more appropriately, In her book, In a Different Voice, she proposes an ethics of care that is female-friendly and female-based, or more appropriately, feminine-gender-friendly and feminine-gender-based, which differs from the main moral theories in the standard syllabus of a course on ethics and morality.
This essay will explain how they are different, why the ethics of care is particularist in its focus and how it is a legitimate alternative to traditional moral theorizing despite some objections arguing that it fails to respect central moral values like impartiality.
Care ethics for Physicians — Elisabeth Goldwyn. It relies on the It relies on the assumption that caring is a very basic and fundamental human capacity. The relational account of moral subjectivity between the ethics of care and Donald Winnicott How can we consider human subjectivity as ethical, granted that human beings are essentially interdependent, self-opaque, vulnerable and The relational account of moral subjectivity between the ethics of care and Donald Winnicott How can we consider human subjectivity as ethical, granted that human beings are essentially interdependent, self-opaque, vulnerable and ambivalent in their emotions?
The aim of this paper is to tackle the question against the background of the relational notion of subjectivity developed in the ethics of care. First, we analyse Carol Gilligan's theory of moral development and focus on its underlying notion of relational subjectivity.
Further, we revise some of Gilligan's ideas with the help of the object relations theory and Donald Winnicott's concept of transitive space of play in particular.
Finally, we show how Winnicott's view of the role of play in human development, especially its capacity to be transformative, joyful, binding and critical, enriches the notion of relational subjectivity and its ethical implications as studied by care ethicists.
Etica della cura, patriarcato e resistenza. The present article is an investigation into the possibility, raised by the research of both Shlain and Gilligan, in different contexts, that women have a distinctive capacity to ameliorate the kind of religiously motivated violence The present article is an investigation into the possibility, raised by the research of both Shlain and Gilligan, in different contexts, that women have a distinctive capacity to ameliorate the kind of religiously motivated violence witnessed globally in the present era.
To be able to make sense of the need for such intervention by women, the present global situation is first reconstructed with reference to recent, allegedly religion-motivated, so-called " terrorist " attacks, such as those in Paris, France.
These attacks are placed in an interpretive framework provided by Huntington, on the one hand, and Hardt and Negri, on the other. More specifically, Huntington's thesis is that we live in a time when global conflict will no longer occur on the same grounds as in earlier eras e. Hardt and Negri answer the question concerning the renewed prominence of religious fundamentalism by showing that this does not mark a return to a premodern condition, but is rather a postmodern phenomenon where cultures such as Islam reject the emergence of the new sovereign, supranational power, which they call " Empire ".
It is against this backdrop that Shlain and Gilligan's arguments concerning the specific predispositions of women towards mediation and intervention in situations of religious conflict must be seen. Shlain's argument is that, since the earliest hunter-gatherer times women have concentrated on tasks that engage right-brain capacities such as nurturing and caring, while men focused on left-brain tasks that involve objectivity, logical thinking and dispassionate decision-making.
While both genders have the same capacity to perform these different tasks, the one set became conventionally associated with women and the other with men, which has resulted in a predisposition on the part of women to perform these tasks. Her analysis of the respective reasoning of a boy and a girl who had to respond to a moral dilemma, shows that, contrary to the view that the boy displayed greater moral maturity than the girl by focusing on the question of justice, the girl displayed different priorities in her reasoning, namely her concern with human relationships.
Considering the above it is therefore argued that women clearly possess a capacity for caring, empathy and nurturing that would be invaluable in situations of religiously motivated conflict, in which they should be encouraged to mediate.
