In the last few years the Ethics of Care has received increasing and often controversial attention. Using Nel Noddings' "Caring" as the primary text, I intend to summarize the book's central tenets and survey the major criticisms of an Ethics of Care, which I classify into two groups-the claim that the Ethics of Care is: (a) a Domain Ethic; or (b) a Dangerous Ethic. I will then consider issues and problems of educational application. I will close with some observations on the present status of the Ethics of Care and its significance for education.
