To meet such challenges, primary healthcare nurses must adapt to new roles and acquire new skills regarding self-management support. READ MORE

  2. 2. Un-common Sociality : Thinking Sociality with Levinas

    Author : Ramona Rat; Fredrika Spindler; Marcia Sá Cavalcante Schuback; Robert Bernasconi; Södertörns högskola; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Levinas; sociality; community; un-common; Nancy; Blanchot; facing; inside-out; Kritisk kulturteori; Critical and Cultural Theory; Östersjö- och Östeuropaforskning; Baltic and East European studies;

    Abstract : The present investigation develops the notion of sociality based on Emmanuel Levinas’s thought, and proposes an understanding of sociality that resists becoming a common foundation: an un-common sociality which interrupts the reciprocal shared common, and thereby, paradoxically, makes it possible. By engaging in the larger debate on community, this work gives voice to Levinas on the question of community without a common ground, a topic and a debate where he has previously been underestimated.
