Podcast: Edith Stein on Empathy. The Curious Catholic Podcast.

When it came time to select a topic for her doctoral dissertation in philosophy, the young Edith Stein eventually settled on the topic of empathy. Today, this work of hers can be read in English under the title, On the Problem of Empathy.

In German, the word Stein uses for empathy is einfühlung, and it gives a sense of “inward feeling.” More than just a sympathetic awareness of the feelings and thoughts of others, empathy is understood as the very experience within ourselves of the experience of other persons. In a way, we bear within ourselves the life of the other, thus opening up the very possibility of interpersonal life. 

My guest on today’s episode is Donald Wallenfang, Professor of Philosophy and Theology at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, Michigan. Donald is a Secular Discalced Carmelite and received his Ph.D. from Loyola University Chicago. Donald has written and edited numerous books, articles and essays, but today we discuss his work titled, Human and Divine Being: A Study on the Theological Anthropology of Edith Stein. 

(Dette er del en av intervjuet med Wallenfang. Hør også del to.)

 “I just felt that at the end of the day that it wasn’t the voices of the maids that were heard. I know Aibileen. I know Minny [played by Octavia Spencer, who won a best-supporting-actress Oscar]. They’re my grandma. They’re my mom. And I know that if you do a movie where the whole premise is, I want to know what it feels like to work for white people and to bring up children in 1963, I want to hear how you really feel about it. I never heard that in the course of the movie.”
