Abstract

If to be sympathetic to others is a prerequisite for harmonious community, how does this function in the absence of identities in common? In his figurations of sympathy as auto-poetic affectivity, Walt Whitman’s Song of Myself offers a way; exceeding the humanist register on which much thinking about community relies.
