. New York, NY: Oxford University Press, 2006. Virginia Held is the publisher and a writer of numerous books on ethics of treatment. She attempts to transcend principles of Liberal Justice in much of her writing, and she argues that they are not as faulty as constrained, and discusses the potential differences in social interactions, based on children and motherhood. Held's basic moral principle is based on a human’s desire to access non-contractual treatment. Kittay, Eva Feder and Myers, Diana T., ed. Women and Moral Theory . U.S.A.: Rowman and Littlefield, 1987

Another leading care ethicalist is Eva Feder Kittay. She has been one of the most authoritative anthologies of care theory since her book Women and Moral Theory (1987), with Diana T Myers as an editor. In this work, Gilligan’s work critically and she designed conceptual territory through the analysis of important philosophical terms that include self-sufficiency and sovereignty, and other principles that were written by feminists and women. Ruddick, Sara. Maternal Thinking: Toward a Politics of Peace . New York, NY: Ballentine Books, 1989. In his essay "Maternal Thought" in 1980, Held calls Sara Ruddick the original founder of caring theory, presenting the first feminine concept of ethics that was articulated. In this article Ruddick uses ethical methods that was later used in her book years later (1989) to explain the philosophy of the lived experience of motherhood and to provide an inherently moral thought approach and the foundation for a feminist peace politics.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
