These are the issues I want to cover in the second half of the chapter. Caring and an Ethic of Care An ethic of care starts from the fundamental position of the relationality of all humans with each other and the environment, and the interweaving of multiple relationships as the basic human condition throughout life. Care—the ongoing concern for the well-being and the constructive development of the one caring, the one or ones cared for, and the relationship—is the core value.

Empirical Research on an Ethic of Care in the Educational Context There is not much more in the management pedagogical literature. They focus on the relationship between teacher power and the flexibility to create a caring learning environment (Noblit 1993), the caring posture of assistant principles in primary, middle, and secondary schools (Marshall et al. 1996), the characteristics of caring advising relationships in higher education (Holmes 2004), the facilitation of case discussions on social issues management from an ethic of care perspective in higher education (Burton and Dunn 2005), and the phenomenon of university faculty giving up or not giving up on students’ learning (Hawk and Lyons 2008).

For the rationality issue, Slote makes clear his distinction between theoretical/epistemic rationality and practical rationality. He describes the former as cognitive only and as the rationality embedded in the ethics of Kant, Mills, and Rawls. The rationality of an ethic of care is practical rationality and practical reasoning (Rorty 1988), or one where the individual uses all of his/her capabilities, including affective, intuitional, and imaginative, to arrive at a reasonably defensible assessment of the uniqueness of the context and a reasonable action to care in collaboration with those who are part of the relationship (see also Rooney 1994, for a discussion on the value of reasoning and the abuses of reason).
