    A Critical Analysis of Neurological Theories on Empathy in Healthcare.Ylva Gustafsson - 2021 - International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics 14 (2):97-113.
    Some employ neurological theories of empathy to train medical students and to explain why care work is emotionally exhausting. I argue, however, that these theories develop conceptual and methodological confusion that creates a reductive and misdirected focus in patient-centered care. Neurological theories on empathy do not help us understand patient-centered care, nor do they help us understand why care work can be exhausting. By discussing examples of care work, I argue that empathic attentiveness to patients is a dialogical ethical response (...)

    Ethics and the philosophy of culture: Wittgensteinian approaches.Ylva Gustafsson, Camilla Kronqvist & Hannes Nykänen (eds.) - 2013 - Newcastle upon Tyne, UK: Cambridge Scholars Press.
    Questions of ethics and the study of culture are tightly interwoven. Are we to see ethics as one thread in the fabric created by human culture or does ethics rather transcend culture? The discussions in this volume take place within this spectrum. Eleven Wittgenstein scholars explore how ethics is embedded in everyday activities and speech. The topics dealt with range from the ways we speak about human practices and nature, religious belief, gender, and moral understanding to questions about Wittgensteinâ (TM)s (...)

    Evolution, Human Behaviour and Morality: The Legacy of Westermarck.Olli Lagerspetz, Jan Antfolk, Camilla Kronqvist & Ylva Gustafsson (eds.) - 2016 - New York: Routledge.
    This book highlights the recent re-emergence of Edward Westermarck's work in modern approaches to morality and altruism, examining his importance as one of the founding fathers of anthropology and as a moral relativist, who identified our moral feelings with biologically-evolved retributive emotions. Questioning the extent to which current debates on the relationship between biology and morality are similar to those in which Westermarck himself was involved, the authors ask what can be learnt from his arguments and from the criticism that (...)
