Introduction: Muslim care beyond the self: Ethics of care among Muslims and their Neighbors

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


What do we, as human beings—religious, non-religious, Muslim and non-Muslim—care about, and how do experiences of caring and being cared for come to shape the way we lead our lives with and among others? In this special issue, we set out to explore the relations between Muslims and various religious and non-religious others through the concept of ‘care’. Doing this, we dwell specifically on what we describe as tensions in care relations and the way they are experienced, thought of, conceptualized and negotiated: 1) tensions between individual aspirations and care for others 2) tensions between care as duty and care as pleasure and ground for human flourishing 3) tensions between practical and emotional dimensions of care 4) tensions between universal and cultural or ideological aspects of care and 5) tensions between state projects of care and religiously motivated care practices.
