Sample text

These are merely notional boundaries that easily may be crossed once the relations between the mind and the world become vital and unstable. They are hospitable to the idea of change which they do not, like Hutcheson or Shaftesbury, associate with degeneracy or corruption. So it is possible for them to entertain a range of sympathetic possibilities, or sympathies, far more radical in its implications than those would allow who stand up for the justness, integrity and genuineness of the self. So it is to the varieties of sympathy we turn now.

Although the scope of the person is very differently conceived by the two political philosophers, they are agreed that the person is a representative, an image of a unity that can never be demonstrated, only represented. While Hobbes would argue that in a commonwealth almost anything can be personated, Locke restricts his use of person to what Hobbes would call the imagination, namely the residue of all the sense impressions held in the mind or memory. 69 In Locke’s terms it represents all we can know of the continuity of the self, and although he would be the first to say that the concatenation of images out of which it is formed is far from continuous, he would insist that there is a perfectly adequate forensic function this self can fulfil: it can impute actions to itself, it can claim them as its own and take responsibility for the consequences.

47 The internal perceptions associated with the operation of the affections are in a well-formed mind sealed off from that kind of imprecision which Hutcheson goes so far as to call disorder, a condition productive of something less than the truth: namely illusion or fiction. 48 Far from empiricism leading to a solid and accurate estimate of the world and our relation to it, it represents for Hutcheson the opposite: a tyranny exercised by things over the mind by means of the senses and the passions, a delusion.
