This book argues that it is both possible and proper to develop a jurisprudence capable of incorporating the knowledge of patients. Drawing on feminist scholarship, this book proposes a model for a 'caring jurisprudence' that integrates the ethic of justice and the ethic of care to ensure that patients' knowledge is included in judicial decision making.
Susan M. Behuniak is professor of political science at Le Moyne College.
