Chapter 3 argues for the importance of ethics and assesses the contributions of differing schools such as the ethics of care and Judith Butler's work on recognition. In a context where technique and expertise have been emphasised, this chapter stresses a vision that acknowledges the inevitability of conflicting perspectives, and it also highlights the dangers of monopoly positions on truth, which limit debate.

Keywords:   recognition, Judith Butler, ethics of care, consequences, dialogue
