In the Republic , Plato divides the soul into three parts and gives to each a different kind of desire rational, appetitive, or spirited. You also assume that people will cross over boundaries to reach you, as Aboriginal people have done for more than years in Australia at risk to their language, country, culture and even safety. So if the sage loses any natural advantages in misfortune, he has no emotion about them. Examples listed by Aristotle include sailors on a ship, soldiers on an expedition, members of families, business relationships, religious associations, citizens of a political community, and colleagues engaged in contemplative activity. Someone whose self-esteem is based on an enjoyment taken in deliberation will be attuned to wider complications and will have the wider imaginative powers needed for correct deliberation from a steady and general point of view.

This volume mines the work of phenomenologists and the methods of phenomenology to extend and deepen our understanding of these complex experiences. Interest in the phenomenon of forgiveness continues to grow, as the question of forgiveness for past injustices has become a global issue.
Phenomenologists have a special contribution to make to the discussion of forgiveness, both because of the capacity to describe and analyse the richness of first-person experiences of forgiving and being forgiven, and because many of the twentieth-century phenomenologists, such as Arendt, Beauvoir, Fanon, Husserl, Levinas, Ricoeur, Sartre, and Stein, experienced first-hand the trials of war, detention, violence, exile and occupation that tested their power to forgive.
Phenomenology and Forgiveness addresses questions such as whether it is only ethical to forgive in response to apologies and expressions of remorse or whether forgiveness is a gift, whether some acts are unforgiveable, the role of forgiveness in political life, and whether it is possible to forgive ourselves.

My paper considers the role of wonder and admiration in times of crisis. I argue that wonder shou In contrast, in admiration, we must judge the objects as admirable, that they have some valuable traits.
In ordinary times, it may be immoral acts that stand out as unfamiliar and so provoke wonder. However, I will focus on the importance of wonder in times of crisis, to recognise the unfamiliar, when many or most are treating the immoral as normal, as Hannah Arendt describes it.
Then admiration is the response that can enable us to take the unfamiliar as valuable moral exemplars and to emulate them. Nevertheless, I will argue, contra Linda Zagzebski that we can admire a person, action, or character trait without necessarily being motivated to emulate them.
Also, I contend that we can have ambivalent feelings mixed with our admiration and still be moved to emulate others. The complexity of the relation between these three emotions and attitudes—wonder, admiration, and emulation—means that while they can contribute to resistance to immorality in times of crisis, they are untrustworthy in myriad ways. Her best-known work in fem She has also articulated the phenomenological experience of chosen pregnancy, homemaking, the need for private space, the experience of wearing clothes and other significant situations.
Her book Inclusion and Democracy considers these questions on a more international scale and considers how oppressed groups can be included in political institutions.
Finally, her posthumously published work on responsibility argues that we have global responsibilities for injustices that occur, although we might not have intended to harm others. Kant suggests that we may say something untrue or insincere since others are free to interpret ou His view is based on the idea that even in the worst of times we should not do that which eliminates trust. My paper considers the conditions Kant believes essential to maintain a basic level of trust so that in better times peace is possible and their relation to sincerity.
Sometimes sincerity is not the most important thing, but truthfulness and the willingness to act as if we were sincere and thought others and the world are worthy of our trust.
Finally, I consider whether these conditions of trust obtain in post-genocide Rwanda. Emotional Enlightenment: Kant on love and the beautiful.
