I use da inernet!

Ok so I’m still around, had a fantastic and lazy Christmas. I guess I am starting to realize that I have to go back to school soon. I have a feeling this is going to be the hardest semester ever. I am signed up for 4 (intense) art classes. With that in mind my modest new years resolution is just to read books. I know it’s simple but when visual art consumes your life it’s important to not let the thinking part die lol. I have this huge stack of books by my bed and I am going through it like a snail… A diligent and happy snail.

Yar… Have a link!

    Metaphoric definitions (Ones you are probably more familiar with Hannah)

    Empathy, like any complex term, has attracted to itself certain more-overt metaphors, especially those of mirrors and resonance. Chinese translation proposes the metaphor of the reasoning heart.

    Philosopher Edith Wyschogrod asserts: “Since touch is the paradigmatic sense for bringing what is felt into proximity with feeling, structural affinities between touch and [empathy and sympathy] can’t be shown.

    Use of the Word Empathy

    Not to be confused with Pity, Sympathy, or Compassion.
    For the fictional character, see Empath (comics).
    For the GNOME instant messaging client and toolkit, see Empathy (software).

    Empathy (from the Greek εμπάθεια, transliterated as empatheia, meaning “physical affection, partiality”) is commonly defined as one’s ability to recognize, perceive and feel directly the emotion of another. Since the states of mind, beliefs, and desires of others are intertwined with their emotions, one with empathy for another may often be able to more effectively define another’s mode of thought and mood. Empathy is often characterized as the ability to “put oneself into another’s shoes”, or to in some way experience the outlook or emotions of another being within oneself, a sort of emotional resonance.
