English to Greek: The Concept of Empathy
General field: Science
Detailed field: Philosophy
Source text - English
Empathy is considered as the ability to possess knowledge of the inner perspective of another being. There is a passage for me through a foreign being's expression, for example the look on his face, to his inner state of feelings. When I see somebody looking sad, then I know he is sad. This means that there is a motivation partly within me and partly outside of me that motivates a new perception in me, the foreign being's experience. What is motivated in me is not a feeling but a mental activity. I do not necessarily feel what he feels but I know how he feels and I begin to understand his being. Empathy is neither compassion, nor sympathy but the precondition of their occurrence. In particular, empathy is the sharing of subjective states as objective which leads us to the concept of intersubjectivity and the understanding of the objective world.
Translation - Greek
Ως ενσυναίσθηση θεωρείται η ικανότητα γνωσιακής διείσδυσης στην εσωτερική προοπτική ενός άλλου όντος. Διά μέσου της έκφρασης του άλλου όντος, επί παραδείγματι του ύφους του, βρίσκω ένα πέρασμα στην εσωτερική συναισθηματική κατάστασή του. Οταν βλέπω κάποιον θλιμμένο, τότε γνωρίζω ότι είναι θλιμμένος. Αυτό σημαίνει πως υπάρχει μία κινητοποίηση εν μέρει εντός μου και εν μέρει εκτός μου, η οποία κινητοποιεί μία νέα αντίληψη εντός μου, το βίωμα του ξένου όντος. Αυτό που κινητοποιείται εντός μου δεν είναι συναίσθημα, αλλά νοητική δραστηριότητα. Δεν αισθάνομαι κατ' ανάγκην αυτό που αισθάνεται ο άλλος αλλά γνωρίζω πώς αισθάνεται και αρχίζω να κατανοώ το Είναι του. Η ενσυναίσθηση δεν είναι ούτε συμπόνια, ούτε συμπάθεια αλλά η προϋπόθεση της εμφάνισής τους. Συγκεκριμένα, η ενσυναίσθηση είναι η κοινή κατοχή υποκειμενικών καταστάσεων ως αντικειμενικών που μας οδηγεί στην έννοια της διϋποκειμενικότητας και της κατανόησης του αντικειμενικού κόσμου.
