NAJMANOVICH, Denise. Ourselves and the others: diversity and caring of the self and of each other. LTP [online]. 2018, vol.36, n.73, pp.17-31.  Epub July 24, 2019. ISSN 2317-0972.

In this paper we have worked the idea of taking advantage of the power of the cinema to manage singular encounters and to enable the care of self and of each other in gatherings, without smothering it according to moral imperatives. Making room for diversity presupposes accepting the radical singularity of every existence. In order to do so, we must abandon the moral of the judgment, with its abstract values, and delve into the landscape of life. Our culture has been organized around an identitarian and normalizing perspective, which leads to disabling the experience of the encounter. Diversity, therefore, is liquefied and is subsumed in difference, captured by the normal as a pattern of comparison.

Keywords : Diversity; ethics; care of the self.
