The morning event introduced key ideas about empathy and the use of metaphor in social relations. Starting from the reality of empathy in post-conflict reconciliation: Jo Berry, whose father was killed in an IRA bombing 25 years ago, talked about her journey to understand the motivation that led to violence, in conversation with Patrick Magee, who planted the bomb.

Professor Lynne Cameron, during the second half of the session, illustrated how metaphor analysis of Jo and Pat’s conversations provides insights for a theory of empathy and for research users, such as mediators and communicators.
