From Sympathy to Empathy : Hume and Beyond

Erdman Conference Center Princeton
March 2nd - 4th 2012

The concept of sympathy/empathy/fellow-feeing/sociability is key to the Scottish Enlightenment philosophers’ response to the egoism of Hobbes and Mandeville. It makes a striking appearance in the work of Hutcheson, Hume, Smith and Ferguson, yet each approach the matter in slightly different ways. This workshop follows a conference organized in 2011 by The Centre for Ethics at the University of Antwerp. The CSSP and Antwerp invite paper proposals on any aspect of the theme – including contemporary philosophical treatments of sympathy and empathy. Proposals should be no more than 500 words and submitted as email attachments to cssp@ptsem.edu by 1st December 2011. Decisions will be notified by early January 2012.
