Ein Beitrag zur Ästhetik (On the Optical Sense of Form: A Contribution to Aesthetics), Vischer states:25 I entrust my individual life to the lifeless form, just as I . . do with another living person. Only ostensibly do I remain the same although the object remains another. 26 42 E nco u n t e r wi t h Mo s e s an d M i r i a m An important feature of Vischer’s notion of Einfühlung is its reciprocal aspect. In her analysis of Vischer’s idea, Juliet Koss suggests that the connection between the empathizer and the empathized object is so intense that the viewer and the object take on something of one another and both are changed in some intrinsic way.

However, even though I felt intensely for her and with her, I did not quite find myself literally being “magically transformed into this other,” as Vischer suggests. Throughout my experience, I still retained a strong sense of myself and a self–other distinction; I did not for one instant find myself being “magically transformed into” her in any way. I am deliberately making this point because in some ways, this issue lies at the heart of recent confusion over what the term “empathy” means.
