(p.9) Part I Introduction
The Caring Motivation

Ofra Mayseless

Oxford University Press

Part I provides an introduction to the more extensive and detailed discussion of major conceptual frameworks and research paradigms regarding caring: spiritual views of caring, evolutionary approaches, empathic processes, biological bases (brain research, the role of neorohormones such as oxytocin, and genetic considerations), attachment theory, and caregiving and feminist perspectives. The introduction includes a brief delineation of general conceptions of relatedness that did not differentiate between receiving and giving as a fundamental part of human relations. It also underscores the distinctiveness of the giving side—caring and the importance of its study as a distinct motivation and not just its manifeatations and practice.

Keywords:   caregiving, caring, spirituality, evolution, attachment, feminism, empathy, brain research, gene, oxytocin
