CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition

The presence of new experts in the field of care, specialized in ethics and with a mostly theoretical training, could be seen superficially as a step forward, a moral warrant. But this view does not resist the test of facts. Ethicists and other trainers in “best practices” owe their legitimacy to a generalized suspicion toward the moral capacities of the care givers; a suspicion which these experts widely contributed to maintain and to strengthen over the last fifteen years, through their one-sided fight against “ill-treatment,” a term imposed to legitimize and secure their market share in the management of affects.
