Biography Theodor Lipps
(1851-1914) - German psychologist. Advanced the theory of empathy as a special mental act, with a rum-subject perceiving an object, projected onto him their emotional state, while experiencing positive or negative aesthetic experiences. They did not awaken the artistic creation, and are introduced to it. When the perception of inanimate forms (eg, architectural structures), you sense that they are full of inner life. This explains the geometrical illusions (eg, vertical line is perceived longer than in reality because the observer feels as if pull-up). Data on the subject of empathy in the linear and spatial forms, as the concept of empathy, are used in the psychology of art.
