Summary
Etymologically derived from a combination of the Greek syn, for together, and aisthêsis, for perception through the senses, the term synesthesia (also spelled synaesthesia) denotes a process of inter-sense analogy, whereby one sense modality experiences what usually belongs to one or more of the other senses. This paper explores the distinct approaches that Art, Science, and Philosophy have assumed towards the concept, and discusses how an awareness\\nof synesthetic bodily-mental-sensory processes opens up new perspectives of research that may interrelate the arts with cognitive neuroscience, as well as transform other fields of contemporary knowledge.
