Empathy: A Global Imperative for Peace

November 30, 2018

Abstract

This essay maintains that interplays between empathy, goodwill and other-regarding behaviors can make a huge difference in arguing one type of community into existence (one based on inclusivity, peace, respect, and universal human values) as opposed to arguing another kind of community into existence (one based on turmoil, meanness, wretchedness, genocide, and heaps of trouble).   The author offers a pedagogy of empathy as a practical approach to improving human relations.
