What does it mean to think and sense beyond empathy’s iterative associations with emotional equivalence, fellow feeling, or humanisation to instead confront its deep and immanent entanglement with radical otherness? What, in turn, are the implications of understanding empathy not as simple or singular but rather as an unfolding set of socio-biological, techno-cultural, and politico-ethical relations that imbricate the human and non-human within worldly transactions and ecologies? These are two of the central questions this interdisciplinary volume explores with considerable distinctiveness, acuity, and insight.
