Mirror-Touch synaesthesia, in bringing together leading, artists, philosophers, and experiencing synaesthetes, is of equal importance to the fields of science and the humanities, shedding new light on in-feeling (empathy) and its vital relevance to contemporary life and culture. The book reminds us of how, even in our period, which is characterized by accelerated scientific discoveries, cross-disciplinary exchange and the contribution of artworking and philosophy to science and its methods, in this case to neuroaesthetics, is increasingly crucial and far-reaching, leading to implications for future research in terms of social, cultural, and ethical critique.
