Citizenship as humanity, grounded in care...
Humanity is an activity of the heart, which requires emotional engagement in the lives of other people. It is comprised of living an ethical and empathetic existence in which one sees “oneself as another” (Ricoeur, 1990). Logic and reason are necessary, but they must be linked to an emotion of care for others (Noddings, 2003): logic divorced from care can bring horrifying consequences, such as the Holocaust. Emotions give “spirit” to logic. Care views all people as part of a common humanity. Care connects us together into local and global communities.
