Integrating continental and Anglo-American traditions, the author exposes empathy as the foundation of the being-with-one-another of human beings. The interpretation of empathy is applied to story telling, literature, and self psychology, rescuing empathy from the margins and revealing its role in the understanding of the other and human community.
LOU AGOSTA is an independent scholar of philosophy and a Business Analyst. He has taught philosophy at Roosevelt University, Loyola University, DePaul University, St. Xavier College, Oakton Community College, USA. He also teaches English as a Second Language at Centro Romero in the community center in his neighborhood.
