Judaism and Care Ethics: Possibilities and Challenges
Hosted By: Jewish Studies at Fordham University
This talk will explore the potential challenges faced by efforts to develop a Jewish approach to the ethics of care. In particular, I focus on the role that critiques of abstraction have played in both core texts in care ethics and in Jewish efforts to engage with these texts. I will begin by exploring the way anti-Judaism has shaped critiques of abstraction in care ethics, before turning to how modifying or rejecting the critique of abstraction could be useful for Jewish engagements with care ethics.
