“Research has now established that we begin to communicate with other humans before we are born. It is called haptonomy. Haptonomy is the scientific study of our ability to communicate at a deep, deep level. But unlike talking, haptonomic communication combines words, thoughts, and feelings. It has been described as “a combination of listening and feeling”, “spontaneous empathy”, “psychotactile contact”, or “the science of affectivity”.

There is no room for feelings, emotions: for affectivity. The dimension of feeling — and all that concerns the affective life — is considered as lacking in interest and therefore has no place in this world, as it is of no economic or political value. This dimension would only disturb, in a awkward way, the economic processes of development and production.’
