In my dissertation I am trying to have an in-depth analysis of the concept and a critical discussion of the reach and limits of care ethics as a moral theory. Considering “Sentiment” as the most important feature in moral decisions, Care Ethics rejected the traditional Kantian rationalism in ethics and designed a theory based on moral sentimentalism using lots of arguments made by sentiment defender philosophers in history of philosophy, especially Hume and Hoffman’s. In this theory, the moral agent uses sentiment to understand the moral situation. This understanding raises the feel of empathy toward others who are related to that situation, especially the person who is being harmed. If the moral agent wants to behave ethically, should take an action against the harming that is happening and tries to be caring about the person who is in harm; lessen her pain or at least share feelings with her.
