Summary

The concept of "care" defines our humanity, encompassing not only anxieties and woes but also acts of nurture, prudence, and diligence. Care is core to how we interact with one another and our surroundings, whether for good or bad. Insofar as everyone cares about someone or something, everyone cares about care. Covering topics as diverse as familial care, medical care, artistic care, scientific care, and various other permutations of the term, this book examines the word and concept of "care" from a cultural perspective, tracing its use throughout literature and history.
