" [A]s educators, if we want our students to understand the potential as well as the problems of empathy, we should neither assume students will become attuned to others simply by reading nor insist that readerly empathy is always illegitimate. Instead, we should emphasize that empathy is multidimensional, flawed, fascinating, and inescapably—for better and worse—at the heart of social relationships."
p. 12 of Ann Jurecic's article "Empathy and the Critic" (10-27)
