Care and the Pluriverse

A perennial debate in the field of global ethics revolves around the possibility of a universalist ethics as well as arguments over the nature, and significance, of difference for moral deliberation. Decolonial literature, in particular, increasingly signifies a pluriverse – one with radical ontological and epistemological differences.

This book examines the concept of the pluriverse alongside global ethics and the ethics of care in order to contemplate new ethical horizons for engaging across difference. Offering a challenge to the current state of the field, this book argues for a rethinking of global ethics as it has been conceived thus far.

“This book develops an exciting and innovative synthesis between decolonial and feminist care ethics. It is essential reading for all scholars working in international and global ethics.” Kimberly Hutchings, Queen Mary University of London
