Noun. Early 20th century.
[German, from ein- into + Fühlung feeling.]
I'm going to word today's post very carefully. And let me start by stating that I love loanwords in English, and I love the German language (it's on my list of languages to learn before I die). That being said, however, I must admit that, were I searching for a synonym of empathy, German wouldn't be the first language I'd reach for. And neither would einfühlung. It just wouldn't. I'm sorry. I'm clearly racist.
