Empathy is an important concept in contemporary psychology and neuroscience in which numerous authors are dedicated to research the phenomena.

From psychological and biological point of view, empathy is an essential part of human survival and successful living in social groups. This paper introduces an overview of empathy, including history of concept starting with the notion of Einfühlung, as well as beginning of studying and defining empathy, contemporary approach, components of empathy and its evolutionary and neuroscience background, empathy measures, development of empathy through training, and finally, the other side of this generally positive concept regarding interpersonal relationships.
