Reply to Zaborowski, Furlane and Maibom, Kauppinen, Green, and Hardy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Zaborowski, Furlane and Maibom, Kauppinen, Green, and Hardy have all commented on my “The Many Faces of Empathy.” Some of their discussions help clarify the issues at stake in that paper and in other parts of my work, but in other cases their objections involve misunderstandings or can be answered in terms of relevant considerations the objections fail to take into account. Sentimentalism as applied to ethics, epistemology, and (especially) speech act theory emerges largely unscathed and represents a plausible position in all three fields.
