Can the inestimable work be assessed?

Abstract: This article presents the practical-theoretical context in which the issue’s authors asked themselves the question of the assessment of the inestimable work, a concept proposed by Jean Oury that puts in tension both the ethics of care and the economic rationality. In fact, this question is part of a collective approach which combines care and action-research devices with the desire to formalize current practices located somewhere between accompanying and care through a “collective monograph”.
