Pain, pity, and motivation: Spinoza, Hume, and Schopenhauer
Dalarna University, School of Education, Health and Social Studies, Social Work.

Abstract [en]

This paper compares the views on compassion in Spinoza, Hume and Schopenhauer. It is shown that even though all three approach compassion with the same aim and from very similar starting-points, all give significantly different accounts of compassion. The differences among the accounts are compared and explained, and it is shown how progress is made in that later accounts avoid certain problems faced by the earlier ones.
