A Comparison between Objectification and Empathy
- 人文学院－已发表论文 
“物化”与“移情”分属中西文化领域的两个范畴,二者有相似,有不同。相似之处是它们都是关于主客体之间即心物之间的对应关系的范畴;不同之处却是根本的,二者发生的背景及文化氛围不同,其各自所包含的美学内涵和实质不同。“物化”的实质是“我”与物中“我”之同一,而“移情”实质是“我”与“非我”(物)的同一。Objectification and Empathy are two categories separately included in Chinese Culture and Western Culture. They have something in common, but the difference still lies there. The similarity lies in that they both are the categories about the corresponding relations between the subject and the object, i.e., mind and object. However, the difference is fundamental. Firstly, they are generated in different circumstances; Secondly, their meanings and essences are different. In Objectification “I” am the same as “me” in objects but in Empathy “I” am the same as “objects” (non-self).
