Feminist Ethics in Film Reconfiguring Care Through Cinema Paperback / softback
Popular films can do more than merely entertain us; they can contribute to our understanding of human nature and the ethical theory that informs it.
Feminist Ethics in Film explores a varied group of cinematic narratives from the perspective of care-based ethics.
The interpersonal relationships they portray disclose important dimensions of care that have been overlooked in less contextualized discussions.
In particular, the book examines the relationships between care and community, autonomy, family, and self transformation.
Interpreting films from the perspective of the feminist ethics of care both expands our knowledge of this burgeoning area of philosophy and adds depth to our appreciation of the films.
