Abstract

The constructs of empathy and sympathy have been discussed for many years by moral philosophers (e.g., Blum, 1980; Hume, 1748/1975). In addition, for decades, numerous psychologists have assigned empathy and sympathy a central role in moral development, especially as a factor that motivates prosocial behavior (i.e., voluntary behavior intended to benefit another) and inhibits aggression toward others (Batson, 1991; Feshbach, 1975; Miller & Eisenberg, 1988).
