DE WARREN, Nicolas. Fiat cura, et pereat mundus. Husserl’s Phenomenology of Care and Commitment. arete [online]. 2022, vol.34, n.2, pp.511-543.  Epub Dec 22, 2022. ISSN 1016-913X.

The present paper explores “the importance of what we care about” from a phenomenological angle in the spirit of Frankfurt’s seminal essay. I shall reflect upon a few of its central concepts and issues within a Husserlian frame of analysis. My overarching claim is that Frankfurt’s threefold distinction - knowing, ethical conduct, caring - is equally central to Husserl’s phenomenology of reason and, more directly, underlies Husserl’s phenomenological ethics of values and vocation in his Freiburg manuscripts of the 1920s and 1930s.

Keywords : Frankfurt; Husserl; phenomenology; care; values.
