Abstract:

A family is a social institution, a network of intimate relationships, a psychological shelter from a chaotic world-and much more. Family relationships invoke special expectations and commitments, often involving loyalty in a way that conflicts with the impartial and universal nature of most ethical obligations. The family also is a focal point for broader ethical problems, such as obligations related to healthcare, raising children, caring for the elderly, corporal punishment, interpersonal justice, and other issues. The word "family" originally meant "household," thereby including unrelated people (e.g.servants). However, over time "family" came to refer to relationships established either by blood, marriage, or adoption. In more recent times, the word family has been more broadly used to describe people who voluntarily associated in ways that resemble (but do not necessarily match) traditional family relationships.
