A Banach algebra homomorphism on the convolution algebra of integrable functions is the essence of Kisyński's equivalent formulation of the Hille-Yosida theorem for analytic semigroups. For the study of implicit evolution equations the notion of empathy happens to be more appropriate than that of semigroup. This approach is based upon the intertwining of two families of evolution operators and two families of pseudo-resolvents. In this paper we show that the Kisyński approach can be adapted to empathy theory. The adaptation highlights the essential differences between semigroup theory and the theory of empathy.
