Klappentext

This book shows that our capacity for sympathy is inseparable from the modern culture of spectacle and sentimentalism.Do sentiments necessarily have to be sentimental? They are frequently denounced as such by those who see them as histrionic and self-indulgent, threatening our ability to respond appropriately to the plight of others. What are the vested interests, in our culture, that make it seem necessary to view sentimentality pejoratively?This book uses literature, art, and other cultural resources , drawing particularly on Adam Smith, George Eliot, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Dickens, Proust, and Benjamin, to develop a distinctive cultural framework for understanding the underlying patterns that both reproduce our capacity for sympathetic sentiments, while revealing the dilemmas and tensions that make this a field of conflict and controversy.
