Study into the viability of a theoretical concept
The following weeks I will publish the results of a study I conducted the last seven years. This study explores the viability of a theoretical concept: the sense of care. I have designed this concept to be better able to explain care behavior. The existence of such a concept is inspired by the ‘social awareness’ concept (De Swaan, 2004 ), which explains for the attachment of humans to the welfare state, and the sense of work (Van Oosterhout & Breij, 2014), which I consider to be a ‘heuristic instrument’ that people administer at moments they have to make important work-related decisions.
These publications will also appear on my Dutch website tomvanoosterhout.nl
