Overcoming the Problems of €˜Difference€™ in Education: Empathy as €˜Intercorporeality€™ [Book Review]

Studies in Philosophy and Education 17 (4):283-293 (1998)
Abstract
In this paper I am concerned with the notion of empathy and its capacity for overcoming the problem of difference in social life. The concept of empathy has a long history in the Western philosophic tradition but has become discursively submerged in recent times. I am particularly interested in what philosophies of the body may contribute to our understanding of empathy. Psychoanalytic feminism provides some insights. However I identify Merleau-Ponty's conception of body-subject and the intersubjective encounter as offering a potentially more fruitful account of empathy
