Violent Sympathies -- MLA Chicago 2014

Rebeccah Bechtold

In The Theory of Moral Sentiments, Adam Smith reminds us that sympathy for another must emerge from an act of imagination. Yet this act of imagination ultimately fails to capture fully the suffering of another. "Though our brother is upon the rack," Smith warns, "our senses will never inform us of what he suffers" because "we ourselves are at our ease." It follows then that true sympathy and compassion can only come with vulnerability: when the spectator of suffering feels his own life in equal danger.
