Imagining care: Responsibility, dependency, and Canadian literature by A. DeFalco

In Imagining care: Responsibility, dependency, and Canadian literature, Amelia DeFalco explores the ways in which both fictional and personal-biographical Canadian narratives can enhance our understanding of the thorny issues associated with care – the dangers, liabilities and contradictions that often inhere in caregiving efforts and relations of care. In consideration of the common, concrete circumstances in which ordinary individuals find themselves providing unanticipated, non-professional forms of (private) care to their children, parents, other family members or friends, DeFalco exposes gaps in ethics of care philosophical theory in which challenging issues, such as inconsistencies, shortcomings and breakdowns of care, are often absent, overlooked, discounted or left largely unaddressed
