Abstract

One might accept that being moved by the suffering of another human being is a significant feature of the moral life, while denying that this is best explained as a primitive response to another human being in the sense that I characterised in the last chapter. What is important perhaps is not merely that we are moved by the suffering of another, but that we are moved for – or rather, as we shall see, by – the right kind of reason.
