Pub. Date:
The issue of care serves as a critique of the agonizing situation of our civilization, but it also serves as an inspiring principle for a new paradigm of living together. This is what Boff presents in this groundbreaking new work. Boff dreams of a world that is still to come, a world where we no longer need electronic devices to overcome our solitude and fulfill the human essence of care and kindness. Essential Care envisions a globalized society in the great common home of the earth and of a world in which care has been recognized as a fundamental ethos of the human being and as an indispensable compassion for all beings of creation.
