Husserl speaks of “harmonious behavior,” “harmonious systems,” and “harmonious verification”; all in the context of explaining pairing or the analogical in analogical apperception. He gives no  Husserl’s omission of feeling from his account of the “sphere of ownness” and his specification of “fields of sensation” within that sphere, blind us to the dynamics of self-movement and to the foundationally kinetic nature of empathy.
The clinical relevance of the analysis and the concepts it engenders are set forth in the conclusion.

In doing so, I want to highlight three topics or areas of concern: methodology, dynamics, and meaning.
