Sobre o livro
A Journey To the Far Reaches of Empathy. Every generation, a phrase enters our consciousness. In the sixties it was civil rights, in the eighties, it was self-esteem, now our word is empathy. But what actually is empathy? Is it just one thing? Is it inherited? Can it be taught? Is 'corporate empathy' an oxymoron? And is empathy always a desirable human value? Cris Beam tackles these questions and more as she journeys from neuroscience labs, to classrooms; from a reconciliation program in the US, to to South Africa, where the first children born are coming of age.
