A Conversation between Annette Baier and Anik Waldow about Hume's Account of Sympathy

Hume Studies 34 (1):61-87 (2008)
We discuss the variety of sorts of sympathy Hume recognizes, the extent to which he thinks our sympathy with others’ feelings depends on inferences from the other’s expression, and from her perceived situation, and consider also whether he later changed his views about the nature and role of sympathy, in particular its role in morals.
