Responsibility as the 'ability to respond' adequately?

Rechten: Alle rechten voorbehouden

Samenvatting

Analysis of the concept responsibility, which is at present not only voiced on an individual level, but also on an organisational level and on a political level. An action will be seen as responsible when the response that is given to call of the other, whether on an individual level, an organisational or a political level, can be considered adequate by the people involved in and effected by this action. This implies that the needs and interests that are at stake are taken into account and carefully weighed. Referring to Arendt's analysis of the concepts 'thinking', 'judging' and 'acting' and Levinas' analysis of the 'face-to-face relation with the other', the author discusses the preconditions for an action to be seen as responsible in this way
