Sympathy as a foundation of multicultural society (PDF)

A dialogue with Adam Smith

Ishimatsu Hiroyuki,

If legal norms and the ascription of rights are to achieve their purposes, they must receive public support. What, then, can provide the foundation for a sense of belonging, and make a reality of legal equality in a multicultural society? How can a sense of belonging to the society as a whole be achieved among all of its members?
Ishimatsu’s answer is sympathy understood as ‘fellow-feeling’. The absence of this social sentiment as thoroughly formulated by Adam Smith in the eighteenth century is a cause of problems in contemporary multicultural society. Sympathy, which takes the form of a moderate sentiment towards others, is needed to cement a multicultural society and make possible the full realisation of its legal and official goals.
