About this title

Synopsis:

How can we understand others in a productive and meaningful way without hurting ourselves and others? What kind of understanding is entailed in this? When is its beginning and when its fulfillment? These and more questions are crucial in our daily life since we are condemned to a relational existence in which we either end up in a mess or bear fruit from it. Edith Stein (1891-1942) offers empathy as a meaningful way of relating with others. Her investigation on empathy establishes its phenomenological ground that eventually opens up to the spiritual dimension of empathetic understanding. This humble work presents how the integration of theory and practice of understanding others, that is, empathy, can lead to a fruitful and meaningful life, even to the point of seeing human suffering as a moment of sacrifice for others, that is, as empathy in its fullness. Those who are in the field of counseling, spiritual direction, accompaniment, or just wanting to relate meaningfully with others may find this book helpful and valuable.
