Art or Science.

I ask the most random questions.

If Sigmund Freud is a philosopher, then is psychology an art or science? 

It’s at the intersection of both and a combination of biology, psychology and sociology. The science sees the patterns, behaviours and the causes which plague a patient. Art is the technique of using that knowledge to skilfully maneuver into the patient’s brain to help them overcome their problem. The voices of reasons.

Is empathy an art, science or religion? 

Empathy is an emotion. If people who do not have deficiencies in their amygdala, by logic they should have the ability to feel for others. If they have narcissistic or psychopathic tendencies then there are scientific evidences they are incapable to empathize.
