Abstract

<b>Gilligan en kompleksiteit : 'n herinterpretasie van die "etiek van sorg"</b> <br>Carol Gilligan (1982) argumenteer in <I>In a different voice&lt;/I&gt; ten gunste van 'n "etiek van sorg" wat, volgens haar, 'n skakel is met die morele stem van vroue. Hierdie standpunt is gekritiseer deur aan te voer dat dit essensialisties is en gender stereotipes versterk. In hierdie artikel word daarteenoor geargumenteer dat die "etiek van sorg" 'n kreatiewe benadering tot etiek in 'n komplekse sosiale stelsel kan wees. Hierdie posisie word ondersteun met argumente vanuit dekonstruksie diskoerse.

In <I>In a different voice&lt;/I&gt; (1982) Carol Gilligan argues for an "ethic of care", which she links to a "moral voice" of women. This stance has been criticised as being essentialist and reinforcing gender stereotypes. This article, however, argues that the concept of an ethic of care could be a creative way of approaching ethics in a complex social system. Its position is supported by arguments from deconstruction discourses.
