Abstract

The question of how far we should care for the others raises important issues at the interface of geography and moral philosophy. The paper reviews partiality conventions manifest in favouring nearest and dearest people. The possibility of expanding the scope of care raises questions concerning spatial relationships, human similarity and care as a moral value. Possible reconciliations of impartiality and an ethic of care are outlined, leading to the conclusion that care should be related to an egalitarian theory of justice
