Example text

Where friendship appears in very signal instances, my hart catches the same passion, and is warmed by those same sentiments, that display themselves me (1739: 604–605). This points to a remarkable development in Hume’s thinking: his displacing of sympathy from the center to the periphery of his account of moral judgments (approbation and disapproval), which, in turn, is complimented by the contrary movement of Hume’s “delicacy of taste” from the periphery to the center. 0005  A Rumor of Empathy remarkably enough, in the direction of the aesthetic sense of taste.

It sounds like step one of an empathic communication that, with further cognitive processing, results in empathic relatedness between individuals. Kant’s “communicability of feelings” is the clue to the reconstruction of the deep history of empathy in Kant.

However, this deep history of empathy is not only about how Kant anticipates the modern definition of empathy.

1790/93b: 158; §29 “General Remark” [AA276]) An entire Kantian theory of the emotions, a properly empathic task, awaits development out of the sublime, the leading thread of which is to relate any arbitrary feeling—whether sadness, happiness, fear, anger, and so on—to moral ideas. For example, a reconstruction includes a morally pleasing sadness, righteous anger at social injustice, contempt at hypocrisy, happiness at virtue rewarded, compassion towards suffering, and so on. The three privileged feelings of respect (of the moral law), delight (in the beautiful), and awe (of the sublime) are joined by the other effects for Kant in so far as they can be related to these paradigm affects.
