empathy | empthi
| n. E20. [Gk empatheia, f. as EM-2 + pathos feeling: see -Y3; tr.
G Einfuhlung.] The power of mentally identifying oneself with (and so fully
comprehending) a person or object of contemplation; = EINFuHLUNG.
the ability to imagine oneself in another's place and understand the other's feelings, desires, ideas, and actions. It is a term coined in the early 20th century, equivalent to the German Einfühlung and modeled on "sympathy." The term is used with special (but not exclusive) reference to aesthetic experience. The most obvious example, perhaps, is that of the actor or singer who genuinely feels the part he is performing. With other works of art, a spectator may, by a kind of introjection, feel himself involved in what he observes or contemplates. The use of empathy is an important part of the counseling technique developed by the American psychologist Carl Rogers.

How many bridges are there in the Adur District? In Shoreham? There are a lot if you count rail and footbridges over roads and small road bridges over water and when is a small bridge not really a bridge at all?
Over the Adur
Five bridges span the main stream of the Adur in the boundaries of Shoreham. All them except the flyover impede navigation of craft up and river and as the port moved steadily eastwards over the centuries.
After travellers had to endure a bumpy ferry crossing at Old Shoreham for centuries or when travelling along the south coast had to make a detour to the substantial medieval stone bridge at Bramber, a wooden bridge was eventually completed at Old Shoreham in 1781. This must have been part of the rebuilding of the town after the Great Storm of 1703 that caused destruction along the coast. In 1916 the wooden bridge was rebuilt in the same design and up to 1971 was the main A27 road for all traffic passing through Shoreham.
It was called the Toll Bridge after the railway line to Horsham via, Bramber, Steyning, Henfield, Partidge Green, and Southwater was constructed and opened in 1861 and tolls were collected for all vehicles crossing the level crossing gates on the east side of the river.
In 1833 The Norfolk Suspension Bridge was opened. It was the same design as the famous Chain Bridge (originally built 1849) that crosses the River Danube between Buda and Pest in Hungary. W. Tierney Clarke and Captain Samuel Brown designed the first Norfolk Bridge. It was replaced by a Bow String Girder Bridge in 1922, which was in turn replaced by a Concrete Box Girder Bridge in 1987.
The first railway from Brighton to Shoreham, via Hove, Portslade, Southwick and Kingston was opened in 1840. It was not until 1845 that the River Adur was spanned with a wooden trestle bridge to carry the line on to Worthing. The current steel bridge replaced the trestle bridge in 1911.
Shoreham Beach did not begin to be populated until the current footbridge was constructed in 1921, from the newly named Shoreham-by-Sea, which acquired its suffix in 1910. The central part of the bridge can still be opened to allow the passage of large vessels.
The Adur Flyover was one of the earlier box girder bridges that had problems caused by their design and needed subsequent strengthening. The by-pass opened to through traffic in 1971.
