Care through deliberation: A new role of the ethics of care (English version)

The second generation model of deliberation can serve as an effective tool for institutionalization and establishing the ethics of care. Ethics of care and second generation deliberative democracy both recognize otherness and diversity and create the “policy of difference” and more inclusive, more substantive notion of citizenship. They imply the idea of autonomy of the will that is based on diversity and uniqueness of human experience. The first generation model of deliberation founded on reason that implies sameness and universal citizenship denies otherness and difference. Consequently, it cannot represent the foundation for the care ethics. The same can be argued for the third generation model of deliberation that emphasizes self-interest, because it is contrary to the fundamental principles of deliberative democracy itself.
