Comment on Breithaupt's "A Three-Person Model of Empathy"

Emotion Review 4 (1):92-93 (2012)
Breithaupt’s central claim is that “empathy can be regarded as a mechanism for strengthening a decision” . My concern is that it is not clear what is meant by “strengthen.” Does empathy merely give more motivational “oomph” to a decision already made, or does it strengthen a decision in the normative sense—does it give more reason for the decision?
