What’s the Big Idea? | Thomas reviews Empathy
by Roman Krznaric
Inspiring, insightful, and approachable, Krznaric’s work Empathy challenges the prevalent view that we (humans) are essentially self-interested, violent creatures, by presenting some much needed evidence that we are also homo-empathicus – social beings wired for empathy and mutual aid.
By presenting 6 habits typically found in highly empathetic people, this book reminds us that practising and developing empathy (seeing the world through another’s perspective) can deeply enrich, not only the quality of our lives, but everyone around us as well.
