|Title:||Empathy, Vulnerability and Anxiety||Authors:||Stout, Rowland||Editors:||Baghramian, Maria||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/11263||Date:||30-Apr-2019||Online since:||2020-02-10T09:40:59Z||Abstract:||A concept of empathy as openness to the emotional perspective of another is developed in opposition to a concept of sympathy as agreement with the emotional perspective of another. Empathy involves knowledge of how things are emotionally for the other person, which is not the same thing as knowledge of the other person’s emotions. Being open to another perspective requires the capacity to hold two perspectives in mind simultaneously–one that is one’s own perspective and at the same time the adopted perspective. This is why empathy can be so challenging for someone suffering from some kinds of anxiety.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor & Francis||Journal:||International Journal of Philosophical Studies||Volume:||27||Issue:||2||Start page:||347||End page:||357||Copyright (published version):||2019 Taylor & Francis||Keywords:||Perspective; Openness; Sympathy; Vulnerability; Empathy; Anxiety||DOI:||10.1080/09672559.2019.1612626||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
