Good stuff. Gooood stuff. The article includes my favourite quote from “The Natural History of German Life” about sympathy. I keep coming back to sympathy again and again in thinking about aesthetics and ethics. E.g., me reading Derek Attridge, The Singularity of Literature: “So… art is… this… Event, and both the creation and reading of a literary work is this encounter with alterity… with an other… and so that means… Oh! He’s talking about sympathy. Yeah, okay.”
