Jovanic Gonzalez 4/21/19 Ethics of Care Ethics of care is based on a principle that prioritizes in caring for the needs of others and holds moral actions on interpersonal relationships as a virtue. In ethics of care, benevolence is a huge attribute that plays into this role and is essential towards one’s action when comforting another person. This simply means that one should be aware of what the other person would want them to do based on their current situation. This would involve doing what is best for that person by preserving harmony and accommodating to their emotional needs. Caring for others means that you are recognizing and responding to others needs by showing empathy and creating caring communities. Looking out for one another and only hoping the best for one another is a caring person. Not only does this apply to people you know, but these actions also need to be done with every person if you really want to be a caring. The reason for that is because ethics of care is a moral principle that should be applied every day throughout your life in order to motivate others towards doing the right thing. Once you find what it is that motivates that person to be a caring person in intimate relationships, one can apply those same techniques with other people who are more distant and not close. Applying ethics of care in any situation means to understand that there are four main elements that play a huge role in this like responsibility, competence, responsiveness, and attentiveness when recognizing a person.

each other when the other person is in need or has little to give back. Caring for one another doesn’t necessarily mean that you must provide everything that person needs that instant but simple handouts like money and food could fulfill the basic needs for that person. In ethics of care, there are four central ideas that one should keep in mind which are moral attention, sympathetic understanding, relationship awareness, and accommodation. Moral attention simply means that facts are what should be paid attention to the most. Second, sympathetic understanding means that one is aware of what the person would want them to do based in their state. Next, relationship awareness deals with the need for creating and sustaining communities based on existing relationships. Finally, accommodation in ethics of care deals with balancing interests and preserving harmony with the person for as long as they can. In the case study about Housing Allowance, it deals with an employee named Wilson Mutambara that does as much as he can to provide for his family. In this case, Wilson falsified receipts in order to liquidate the housing allowance for his family.
