This contribution aims at distinguishing between simplifying narratives and narratives of complexity and at showing their links with empathy and compassion, in order to make it easier to use narratives in a constructive, respectful of human vulnerability, and supportive direction. Such purpose is reached through three steps, each of them corresponding to a section. In the first section the distinction between simplifying narratives and narratives of complexity is pointed out by hypothesizing that simplifying narratives do not grasp the polyphony and the complexity of history, do not accept diversity and take advantage of immediacy. In the second section the Kantian duty of sympathy and the distinction between humanitas aesthetica and humanitas practica, respectively immediate and mediate ways of participating in the others’ feelings, are analyzed and connected with the two kinds of narratives. In the third section the narratives of complexity are explicitly linked to an ethics of vulnerability.
