Government and Marriage (Just Cause)

In this video, Elizabeth Brake (Arizona State University) discusses Care Ethics, a normative ethical view that has been ignored in much of moral philosophy. After introducing Care Ethics, she discusses its application to marriage and political rights. This is the 5th and final part of the series on Government and Marriage.

Professor of Philosophy at Rice University

I am a Professor of Philosophy at Rice University, where I recently moved from Arizona State University.

My research focuses on the philosophy of marriage, love, and sex, procreative ethics, and, more recently, on the state’s role in disaster response.  I have argued for radical marriage reform and coined the term “amatonormativity” to describe the special privileges given to certain relationships. I’ve also written on feminist political philosophy, and philosophy and Bob Dylan.
