Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan UK, Apr 29, 2010 - Philosophy - 184 pages
Integrating continental and Anglo-American traditions, the author exposes empathy as the foundation of the being-with-one-another of human beings. The interpretation of empathy is applied to story telling, literature, and self psychology, rescuing empathy from the margins and revealing its role in the understanding of the other and human community.
