The phenomenological analysis is not focused on action, but on what motivated it; there is interest in this category. Schutz says that "difficult to define the action as motivated behavior, lies not in action, but in the implicit mistake of the term reason"(2008, p. 26). So Sch眉tz differentiates the motivesand the reasons why.Keywords: Phenomenology, reasons for, reasons because, ethical dilemmas, social assistant

    This article reflects on the possibilities for social workers in the Brazilian transsexualization process based on a documentary聽research in resolutions and ethical-political devices produced by the Brazilian Social Work. We discuss here the social name defense, the聽struggle against transvestiphobia, work with the families, the social assistance networks and the construction of the health conscience,聽as a rich field for professional intervention in this program. The conclusion is that although there is no specific technical note to offer聽a reference for the social workers practice in this program, the guidelines for professional work with the transgender population聽provided in the National Health System (SUS) are included in the Professional Ethical-Political Project

    Geographies of generosity: beyond the 'moral turn'

    This paper questions Geographers debates about 'caring at a distance' and the 'geographies of responsibility', focussing on the treatment of the theme of partiality in ethics and justice. Debates in Geography often present partial commitments as morally or politically problematic on the grounds that they prioritize self-interest, exclusionary, and geographically restricted ways of relating to others. We outline how debates about caring at a distance and the geographies of responsibility frame partiality as a problem to be overcome. We argue that Geography's engagements with moral philosophy are premised on faulty assumptions about the sorts of influences people are liable to act upon (one's that privilege causal knowledge as the primary motivating force), and also flawed assumptions about the sorts of problems that academic reasoning about normative issues is meant to address (the assumption that people are too egoistical and not altruistic enough). We use the theme of generosity as an entry point to argue that partiality and finitude might be the conditions for any ethical鈥損olitical project that de-centres the motivation of practical action away from the sovereign self towards responsive and attentive relations of encounter with the needs of others. Understanding generosity as a modality of power suggests a revised programme for geographical investigations of the intersection between ethics, morality and politics: one which looks at how opportunities to address normative demands in multiple registers are organized and transformed; at the ways in which dispositions to respond and to be receptive to others are worked up; and how opportunities for acting responsively on these dispositions are organized

    A Reasonable Negotiation? Workplace-based unionists鈥 subjectivities, wage negotiations and the day-to-day life of an ethical-political project

    peer reviewedThis article analyses how, through adopting responsibility for their co-workers鈥 livelihoods, workplace-based unionists shaped Zambian mining capitalism. I argue that union branch executives learnt that they could best assist their co-workers through offering them financial services and through co-operation with company HR. During wage negotiations, unionists drew strength from this understanding, encouraging them to see ever-decreasing salaries as market-driven, and discouraging the militancy that has on occasion raised wages. Building upon the anthropology of trade unionism, I detail how tangible solidarities within a workplace shape unions鈥 ethical-political projects; and argue that subjectivation through union ideologies can discourage scrutiny of structural injustice. Linking anthropology that explores capitalism through relationships and moral norms to liberalized capital's disempowerment of unions, I claim that unionists鈥 moral, technical, and physical labour mitigated, yet inadvertently enabled, worsening working conditions
