Jul 8 2015 • 54 mins


This show will be about how the past 12 shows have expanded empathy in the community, review the past 12 shows, saying how each has contributed to a conversation about empathy. This is like a summary or an index to the entire body of work on empathy. So in case you are wondering which conversation is most relevant to you, this is a good place to start. Hear about David Howe’s book What is Empathy and Why It Matters. Learn from James Garbarino about Listening To Killers: Lessons Learned from My 20 Years as a Psychological Expert Witness in Murder Case. Key term: “Listening”. Hear about how empathy is tracking software innovation as Affectiva in their implementation of Ekman’s Facial Action Coding Scheme. Get your mind blow – like really – in the work of Alice Dreger on what happens to social justice when empathy collides with the agenda of political advocacy groups and her book Galileo’s Middle Finger. Empathy is like oxygen for the soul - get some here and breath easier all week.
