Abstract

In recent years, the phenomenon of empathy has become central to those scientific research areas which once were remote from this sort of typically “psychological” subjects. Rediscovering empathy, as a basic phenomenon of human experience in certain strictly scientific field, fosters the meeting between neuroscience and phenomenology. This represents a challenge to all those psychologists and psychiatrists who do not trust the dimension of feeling and the lived experience as a research area. The development of empathy in a strong intersubjective perspective is the background of several therapeutical approaches with psychotics and addicts and severe personality disorders, based upon the shared experience of “betweeness”.
