The Analytical Frame of Reference

  • Maren A. Jochimsen


To care is to consciously situate oneself in relation to the world, to the outer social and natural environment. The performance of a caring activity presupposes and involves the conscious establishment of relationships of the individual not only with other human beings but also with non-human entities, the environment and biosphere, plants, animals, objects, and the self. Caring activities are human activities that aim at the long-term maintenance, sustenance, and repair of these physical and social relationships which are indispensable for continuing human existence in a social context.1
