Additional Information Abstract This article links Thomas Hardy's exploration of sympathy in Jude the Obscure to contemporary scientific debates over moral evolution. Tracing the relationship between pessimism, progressivism, and determinism in Hardy's understanding of sympathy, it also considers Hardy's conception of the author as enlarger of "social sympathies"—a position, I argue, that was shaped by Leslie Stephen's advocacy of novel writing as moral art. Considering Hardy's engagement with writings by Charles Darwin, T. Huxley, Herbert Spencer, and others, I explore the novel's participation in a debate about the evolutionary significance of sympathy and its implications for Hardy's understanding of moral agency.

I feel he is leaving too much unsaid. How could we use computers to magnify this value? Perhaps we need to program computers to make an infinite variation of mistakes on any given number of problems, and then comb the results for interesting and fruitful conclusions.
We need to endow computers with an exploration process, which could only be modeled after human fallibility. Rhetorical Strategies Thomas begins his essay with a list of experiences most of us have had at one time or another, with regard to computer errors.
I found this to be an effective beginning because it inspires a sense of agreement with the writer right off the bat. Also, whenever a writer touches upon a pressing issue that affects us every day but about which we rarely talk e.

Essay helping to care for a pet, children also learn animals care for their fellow human animals. There is an established link between humans people treat animals and how they treat each other.
Nor, I think, does the acknowledgment of animal consciousness truly threaten to diminish our sense of the vast gulf—cognitive, moral, creative, imaginative—separating the human world from that of even the most intelligent of animals.
