What did you do? Did you think it was the right thing to do? How do you know? In addition to this “real-life” prompt, subjects also responded to three “standard” hypothetical dilemmas (Skoe et al. 2002: 967). For each of the personal and the impersonal dilemmas, in turn, “participants were…asked to rate the difficulty and importance of it” (967), as well as “rate a list of 11 feelings on a scale from 1 (not at all) to 5 (very much) with regard to how they felt while they were making their decision” (966, emphasis original).

This is similar, I believe, to Mercer’s view that, when we sympathize with someone, we are “disposed to help him – this is the conative element – but notice that I am only ‘disposed’ to help him” (1972: 84). See, also, Blum (1980: 513) for the role of disposition in compassion. ” This notion of the sympathizer feeling that the alleviation of another’s misfortunes is somehow significant for his/her own “ends and goals” is substantially different from that advanced by some scholars on the subject of sympathy.

In any case, as these various conceptions suggest, sympathy may involve a “vicarious” or empathic emotional response to another’s experience; ultimately, though, sympathy requires distance – a clear separation of the sympathizer’s experience from that of the other. Complicating the issue further is the question of the degree to which sympathy is thought to be a component of empathy. While, clearly, the notions are interrelated, the precise ways in which they are connected tend to vary from scholar to scholar.
