New Book: Kinesthetic Empathy in Creative and Cultural Contexts by Dee Reynolds and Matthew Reason

Dee Reynolds and Matthew Reason , Kinesthetic Empathy in Creative and Cultural Contexts (Intellect, 2012)

A key interdisciplinary concept in our understanding of social interaction across creative and cultural practices, kinesthetic empathy describes the ability to experience empathy merely by observing the movements of another human being. Encouraging readers to sidestep the methodological and disciplinary boundaries associated with the arts and sciences, Kinesthetic Empathy in Creative and Cultural Practices offers innovative and critical perspectives on topics ranging from art to sport, film to physical therapy.
