"Guðmundur Finnbogason (1873–1944) was one of the first scientists to explain our inborn capacity to understand each other’s feelings. His doctoral thesis Sympathetic Understanding was originally published in Denmark 1911, and subsequently in France 1913, where it caught the attention of and inspired the famous child psychologist Jean Piaget."
