    16-18/8 Conference: What is empathy and what do we need it for?

    The conferfence is arranged by the Centre for Studies in Practical Knowledge at the School of Culture and Communication, Södertörn University.


    What is empathy and what do we need it for?

    Keynote speakers: Lou Agosta, Ivar Sviestins, Thomas Fuchs, Jan Slaby, Matthew Ratcliffe, Jodi Halpern

    The last ten years we have witnessed an exploding interest in the phenomenon of empathy. The wave of empathy studies is psychology, philosophy, psychiatry and other disciplines is linked to a parallel theoretical interest in the phenomena of feeling, selfhood, inter-subjectivity and morality, but also to practical attempts to understand and improve meetings between workers and clients in different professions, such as health care professions, teaching professions, psychotherapy or social work.

    In the conference we want to gather academics and practitioners from different disciplines who try to move beyond theory-theory and simulation-theory approaches to empathy. We want to address the question of what empathy is from an empirical as well as theoretical perspective, and we want to connect the issue to what role empathy serves in the development of human beings as well as the exercise of human based professions.
