This book develops the foundation of scientiﬁc disciplinary principles such as axiology, ethics, ontology, epistemology, methodology, and praxis in the context of evolving worldview cosmology of One of Belonging to Inﬁnity –quantum universe.
It traces core nursing literature, which excludes ‘caring’ in the meta-paradigm, to a convergence of discourse to Caring being included to the latest turn toward ‘Unitary Caring Science’ as a maturing of the discipline, addressing nursing’s phenomena of wholeness, caring consciousness, energy, relational ontology and evolution of human consciousness.
Another classic Watson book for students interested in the evolution of the discipline and location of caring in the meta-paradigm, this work traces the discourse of the meta-paradigm.
This book shows Jean’s evolution of thinking from the 2008 book Nursing: the Philosophy and Science of Caring. Required reading for Watson Scholars.
Level: Accessible to all readers
Audience: Doctoral and graduate students and those wanting to understand Watson’s Caring Science evolution
