"A book that [...] entered into the debate at exactly the right moment." Christoph Schneider/Bettina-Johanna Krings, Technikfolgenabschatzung - Theorie und Praxis [German scientific journal on technical assessment], 21/1 (2012) "An interesting read not only for professionals but also for those affected and those critically questioning current care practices." Sabine Plonz, DAS ARGUMENT [German bimonthly academic journal for philosophy and social sciences], 292 (2011) "This book can be considered as an important contribution in the research of care in practice. It moves beyond theories of care by choosing practices as starting point to evaluate and improve theoretical insights. This approach is able to present new and surprising insights and for that it is valuable for every qualitative researcher in care practices." Elleke Landeweer, Medicine, Health Care & Philosophy, 3 (2011) "This book illustrates an inspiring path towards the questions how care produces or creates its objects, bodies, patients and carers; and how care incorporates knowledge and technologies."
