Empathy and History : Historical Understanding un Reenactment, Hermeneutics and Education Hardback
by Tyson Retz
Part of the Making Sense of History series
Since empathy first emerged as an object of inquiry within British history education in the early 1970s, scholars have produced a rich literature concerning the concept's influence on the teaching and learning of history.
Yet over the years this scholarship has largely been confined to specialized education journals, while empathy's broader significance role for history and philosophy has too often gone unnoticed.
Empathy and History is the first comprehensive account of empathy's place in the practice, teaching, and philosophy of history.
Beginning with the concept's roots in nineteenth-century German historicism, the book follows its historical development, transformation, and deployment while revealing its relevance for practitioners today.
