The limits of empathy


Forschung von Lamm/Silani in "Psychologist"-Artikel zitiert.

"Snapshots of the horrifying aftermath of terrorist attacks, refugees fleeing their war-torn homes, and families mourning a victim of police brutality can be gut-wrenching. Many people consider this ability to understand and feel what others are feeling, or empathy, as a primary source of morality and the glue that holds societies together. President Barack Obama has described empathy as the 'heart of my moral code' and has suggested that an empathy deficit is at the heart of many of our society’s problems."
