Defining Empathy: Thoughts on Coplan's Approach

Southern Journal of Philosophy 49 (s1):66-72 (2011)
Abstract
In this paper, I raise three sets of issues inspired by Amy Coplan's paper, “Will the Real Empathy Please Stand Up.” They concern whether we need to distinguish between the three phenomena as Coplan suggests, what method(s) should be used in making those distinctions, and whether they are in fact made correctly.
