Sandra Laugier discusses some of the most provocative aspects of the ethics of care in a French context and why it has been controversial. She presents the ethics as a subversion of traditional ethics and feminism, and as a redefinition of politics.

She specializes in Ordinary Language Philosophy, Ethics, American Philosophy (Cavell, Emerson, Thoreau) and gender studies (Ethics of care).
