Empathy and Interpersonal Understanding
The aim of the research project "Empathy and Interpersonal Understanding" is to contribute to this current debate by investigating two questions: 1) What is empathy and what role does it play in interpersonal understanding? 2) To what extent does interpersonal understanding presuppose a common social and cultural background? The project will run from 2011-2016 and is funded by VELUX FONDEN.
