dc.description.abstractThe paper utilises the five distinct perspectives on caring proposed by Morse et al (1990) to illustrate the relationship between love, intimacy and caring. Two distinct types of love, namely agape (altruism/charity) and filia (brotherly love) are utilised in nursing. Only some caring relationships with patients reach an intimate level, and this is determined by patient characteristics that the nurse responds to. It is concluded that caring as a moral imperative is the most relevant to discussions on caring in nursing and the perspective on which the other four viewpoints hinge.en_IE
