The difficulty in comprehending the epistemology of empathy lies in shifting paradigms which have resulted in empathy being viewed as vague and elusive. Such elusive understanding of empathy has confused research, practice, and advancement of therapeutic principles. Empathy is the core of all social and intellectual transformation. Humankind is biologically programmed to use empathy for survival, health, and well-being. Pursuing and understanding empathy frees human capacity for wisdom. Studying the epistemology of empathy is operationally and scientifically relevant in the synthesis of an empathic practice theory. Once understood, renewed curriculum for teaching and training are recommended that would produce more finite outcomes.

Motor imagery is a mental process by which an individual rehearses or simulates a given action. It is widely used in sport training as mental practice of action , neurological rehabilitation , and has also been employed as a research paradigm in cognitive neuroscience and cognitive psychology to investigate the content and the structure of covert processes i. Motor imagery can be defined as a dynamic state during which an individual mentally simulates a physical action. This type of phenomenal experience implies that the subject feels themselves performing the action. Mental practice refers to use of visuo-motor imagery with the purpose of improving motor behavior.

Group members remain committed to their individual preferences and are unable to disconfirm their initial suboptimal selection decisions, even when presented with full information enabling them to correct them, and even if the accompanying group processes are perfectly conducted. This paper examines whether a mental simulation can overcome the IPE. Two experimental studies examine the effect of a mental simulation intervention in attenuating the IPE and improving decision quality in an online individual hidden profile task. Individuals undertaking a mental simulation achieved higher decision quality than those in a control condition and experienced a greater reduction in confidence in the suboptimal solution. Results suggest a role for mental simulation in overcoming the IPE.

Handbook of Eating and Drinking pp Cite as. Throughout our lives we develop a system that helps us navigate in a food environment. In a routine where we are constantly thinking about food and making choices, ranging from whether we actually want to eat, through selection of food category and portion size, to eventual consumption, it is worth highlighting that many of those microdecisions are made without full awareness. However, most probably we have already consumed a similar product previously. Therefore, our brain will simulate the likely impact hedonic and utilitarian the product will have on us and, after experiencing it moment of truth , will determine whether it is congruent with the image or schema we had about it, and if not, to some extent, it will accommodate, and that image will be adjusted. Now, certain products inherently trigger predominantly certain types of simulations e.
To imagine is to represent without aiming at things as they actually, presently, and subjectively are. Unlike perceiving and believing, imagining something does not require one to consider that something to be the case. Unlike desiring or anticipating, imagining something does not require one to wish or expect that something to be the case. Imagination is involved in a wide variety of human activities, and has been explored from a wide range of philosophical perspectives. Because of the breadth of the topic, this entry focuses exclusively on contemporary discussions of imagination in the Anglo-American philosophical tradition.
We argue that the primary function of mental imagery is to allow us to generate specific predictions based upon past experience. Imagery is also characterized by its reliance on perceptual representations and activation of perceptual brain systems. This type of simulation, which we label emulation, has benefits over other types of simulations that merely mimic the content of the simulated scenario. For cognitive scientists, the term mental imagery typically first brings to mind either the protracted debate over the nature of the representations used in imagery or the role of imagery as a mnemonic see Paivio , ; Kosslyn et al. However, research on this topic has often been hobbled by a key problem, namely the sparse stimuli and artificial tasks that imagery researchers contrive for their experiments e. The minimalist character of the sorts of imagery evoked in most laboratory studies may obscure the vivid, rich character of everyday imagery. In doing so, we argue that mental imagery affords us more than the mental rotation of stacked cubes—it allows us to simulate reality at will, and, because of this, allows us to predict what we would experience in a specific situation or after we perform a specific action.
