Sympathy in Mind (1876-1900)
Journal of the History of Ideas, Vol. 70 Issue 2, p265-287
"The article discusses the account of emotion which highlights the
bodily and physiological constitution of various feeling-states. It
highlights the role of sympathy, which was most often understood to be
a kind of tenderheartedness linked to, but distinct from love, in the
debates about the nature of emotion. It explores the theories of
sympathy in the Victorian period which has gained the attention of
literary scholars. The scrutiny of sympathy by scholars in evolutionary
and developmental psychology, ethics and aesthetics is discoursed."
