Philadelphia, PA: FA Davis. 2005/6. This book is for scholars who wish to understand the integration of French philosopher Emmanuel Levinas’ Philosophy and ‘Ethics of Belonging’ as basis for Caring Science world view. Watson makes a case for Caring Science as Sacred Science in that nursing is dealing with life force, the soul of other. This work invites Cosmic love as that to which we all Belong before and after life/death; Sacred circle of life as part of sacred mystery. Personal vignettes of Jean’s journey into loss of her eye and husband are integrated into the text.
