Boyd White and Tracie Costantino gather contributing authors to form the co-edited volume, Aesthetics, Empathy, and Education, documenting human beings' elemental capacities to seek empathetic connections. Through varied perspectives and mediums, contributing authors depict the ground empathy opens into as forming the generative terrain, the aesthetics of human understandings that maps out the educative journey. Empathy as always in process is, thus, never entirely achieved. In attending to this process character, authors included in this volume collectively challenge how education is typically conceived and enacted.
