Caring is an old and familiar concept in ethics and religion thoughts of human, but it has never been considered independently up to some decades ago. On Caring by Milton Mayeroff in 1971 was the first philosophical book written to study caring itself. The book centralized on the recognizing the concept of caring, introducing the necessary components for the development of a caring relationship, and the characteristics of a human life which is organized on the axis of caring. Mayeroff regards caring as a help to progress and the other self-realization (whether to a creative human or an idea), and he claims that caring can give order, meaning and orientation to the humans’ lives. He tries to prove the concept of his claim through definition and limitation. Indeed, the book: On Caring gives breath to caring as a core concept in the Bioethics and the Ethics of human beings. This book is the first junction of Heidegger’s concept of caring with the concept of that as treatment, the initiation of a flourishing path for the analysis of the concept of caring, and its development in the field of theorizing in the Ethics, Education, Economy and Political sciences.
