  1. The analysis and process of Projection is the bread and butter of therapy. Good paintings get many people to see many things; and perhaps at once, or over time different things.

      • Great questions. The reason I found that definition interesting is because it was a new view. Empathy to me meant trying to create in myself the feelings of someone else. This is more about projecting my feeling outward and then seeing them as is they were someone else’s. At this moment I think the answer to your questions is empathy and projection are not separable but also not the same thing. I continue to be intrigued by the question.
