Attuned Care

Attuned Care

(p.132) Chapter 5 Attuned Care
War on People

Jarrett Zigon

University of California Press

This chapter builds off of the previous two by arguing and ethnographically showing that the community of those without community that the anti–drug war movement is trying to create demands that no matter who arrives, that person shall receive the gift of care. In contrast to the anonymous care that is characteristic of biopolitical care, the attuned care of the anti–drug war movement—similar to the disclosive freedom of letting-be—attunes to the singularity of whoever arrives. As in the previous chapter, three detailed ethnographic examples from the same cities are used to illustrate not only the attuned nature of the care offered but also how this attuned care is best understood as the enacted ontological condition for the new worlds this political movement hopes to bring to being.

Keywords:   care, attunement, ethics, biopolitics, community, freedom, hospitality
