SILVA, Luzia Wilma Santana da et al. The care according to Leonardo Boff's perspective, a personality to be rediscovered in nursing. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2005, vol.58, n.4, pp. 471-475. ISSN 1984-0446. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-71672005000400018.
It is an essay about Boff's contribution for care in the macro dimension, from its ecological point of view and micro in the care among the human beings. The author bases the concept of care starting from theological, philosophical, social, and mystical questions, visualizing the human relations that move through the ecological dimension: integral, social and environmental. It aims to know/understand the care broached by the author for the ontological and epistemological fundamentation of care in nursing. The resullt of this one, has been a vigilant arouse in the sense to visualize and to implement strategies of adaptation to the proposal of a new paradigm that involves a rescue of human being essence with a manner-of-being-with-the-world that moves through the care.
