My review of Ike Kamphof's "Webcams to Save Nature: Online Space as Affective and Ethical Space" focuses on the question how the engagement of the spectator of the described websites is temporally structured and how the discrepancy between the instantaneity of affective response and the duration of moral engagement is solved. I propose to draw on Alexander Nehamas' philosophy of beauty as an in-between, bringing affect and ethics closer together.
