Making trouble: Mindfulness as a care ethic

Alexander I. Stingl, Sabrina Weiss

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In this chapter we interrogate the epistemic authority established by the coloniality of power over the notion of care in techno-science. We emphasize that in matters of care, enactive and embodied perspectives are required to comprehend discourses on morality in moral psychology, cognitive science, and ethics. In analyzing the moral mind in 'thinking with' the body, the Umwelt, and in terms of decoloniality, we make possible a 'gutsier' approach to study moral behavior and ethical reasoning in techno-scientific contexts, because they enable an inquiry into subjectivities. The concepts that we adopt diffractively are, therefore, meaning, practice, relations, and bodies not as a reduction but as a starting point for discussions of subjectivities.
