"I highly recommend the collection... should be looked at by anyone who wants to think about what form a phenomenological contribution to some of the problems studied by cognitive scientists might take." -- Bill Wringe Human Nature Review "Interdisciplinary research on empathy is important both for theoretical understanding of intersubjectivity and to meet practical goals such as better physician-patient relationships. Between Ourselves has made solid strides in both of these directions." -- Allison Barnes Philosophical Psychology
