Sympathy and Self-Trust

Sympathy and Self-Trust

(p.189) 11 Sympathy and Self-Trust
Reflections On How We Live

Annette C. Baier

Oxford University Press

This chapter talks about the trusted sense perceptions, sympathy, and the relation between sympathy and self-trust. Sympathy and trust connects people, and like love makes people vulnerable to others and their troubles. One example is a trainee nurse who has to be careful not to become too deeply identified with a patient's suffering, as it could impair the trainee's ability to care for the patient. But equally, lack of any sympathy can result in cruelty or distrust.

Keywords:   trusted sense perceptions, sympathy, self-trust, cruelty, distrust, vulnerable
