Is Noddings’ Ethic of Care simply a different ethical rule rather than       a divergence from ethical rules? Noddings View: A problem with “abstract” ethical systems Abstract situation cause you to lose sight of the actual problem The difficulty of a moral problem is found IN THE DETAILS The concrete situation When we turn ethics into a rational decision making procedure, what we do is sweep  under the rug the very things that make the situation difficult to begin with. Discussing abstract problems is pointless because we are never in an abstract  situation We make decisions in concrete situations We never have to decide whether or not lying, in general, is right or wrong.  We are  forced to decide whether or not lying in a particular situation is right or wrong. Kant’s View: Kant believes that all moral decisions must be made in accordance to the ‘Categorical  Imperative’. The Categorical Imperative does not allow for exceptions based on circumstances.
