Hello again, Matt here.
When I started writing Ethics for Designers, I felt an elephant in the room: the majority of ethical philosophy is written by white men. The history of ethics is incomplete without the people that not only pointed out this lack of diversity, but asked and answered an important question: how can we make sure ethics works for everyone?
Another elephant: I’m a white man myself. Doing right by authors like Mary Astell, Mary Wollstonecraft, Harriet Taylor Mill, Carol Gilligan, and Nel Noddings meant a lot of time in research and writing. I also had the help and support of great friends and an excellent editor — I think this network is a fitting testament to the ideas underlying care ethics.
