Empathy: a history by Susan Lanzoni
Added May 10, 2019

Empathy: A History tells the fascinating and largely unknown story of the first appearance of "empathy" in 1908 and tracks its shifting meanings over the following century. Despite empathy's ubiquity today, few realize that it began as a translation of Einfühlung or "in-feeling" in German psychological aesthetics that described how spectators projected their own feelings and movements into objects of art and nature. ~Summary provided by publisher
