VAZQUEZ PARRA, José Carlos. Linkage and Rationality, Three Focuses on the Ethical Notion of Caring for the Other: An Approach from the Elsterian Theory of Rationality. Relac. Estud. hist. soc. [online]. 2013, vol.34, n.134, pp.349-364. ISSN 2448-7554.

In today's world, caring for others is a topic of little importance for the majority of the population. It seems that the spirit of post-modernity leads mankind to adopt a form of caring that is full only in relation to himself. It is only by adopting alternative states based on ethical notions that it will become possible to reverse this tendency, though for this to happen, a profound reflection on the constructs of the I-Other relation is required.

Keywords : equality; responsivity; election; rationale; ethics.
