The composition of the family
Umeå University, Faculty of Arts, Department of historical, philosophical and religious studies.
2018 (English)In: The Routledge handbook of the philosophy of childhood and children / [ed] Anca Gheaus, Gideon Calder and Jurgen De Wispelaere, Routledge, 2018, p. 191-201Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The chapter starts with an exploration of what the family is in order then to move on to look at its parts. The family has been defined in terms of its form (e.g. a mother, a father, and their biological offspring) or its function (e.g. adults taking and/or sharing custodial responsibility for children). In both of these cases, children are a necessary ingredient for a unit to be called a family – but the chapter also briefly reviews proposals to extend the accolade of "family" to beyond child-rearing. From a perspective concerned primarily with family form, biological and more specifically genetic parents have been seen as those to whom children should be born, and by whom they should be raised. From a perspective concerned with family function, this is not necessarily the case. Lastly, the chapter looks at the relation between parents and the requirements that co-parenting may generate in this regard.
