While these examples bring out very clearly the inevitability of the need for care, they also generate some problems. With respect to disability, the discussion is sometimes insufficiently informed by the social model of disability, which distinguishes between disability and impairment and rejects the assimilation of impairment to incapacity. As a result, it is sometimes assumed that all disabled people need care of a kind or to a degree that non-disabled people do not need. 11 However, some of the cases discussed, such as Kittay’s powerful discussions of severe mental impairment, show that the opposite 32 Affective Equality assumption is also mistaken, and that certain forms of impairment do require specific forms of care.
2004). Why love, care and solidarity matter While conditioned in fundamentally significant ways by cultural considerations, dependency for humans is as unavoidable as birth and death are for all living organisms. We may even say that the long maturation process of humans, combined with the decidedly human capacity for moral feeling and attaching, make caring for dependants a mark of humanity. (Kittay, 1999: 29) Being loved and cared for is of central importance for having a minimally decent life; caring, in its multiple manifestations, is a central human capability serving a fundamental human need (Nussbaum, 1995, 2000).
Even now, after at least two decades of scholarly attention, issues to do with love, care and solidarity and the work that goes into sustaining them are largely confined to branches of academic disciplines that are labelled as ‘feminist’ or ‘radical’ rather than being recognised as central issues. The theme of affective equality has still to become truly integrated into mainstream sociology, education, economics, law and political theory. In the chapters that follow, we hope to contribute to that aim.
