What is Empathy and Where has it gone? Yakir Speaks with Minter Dial about his book Heartificial Empathy
Welcome to yak about today, I’m david yakir and i’ve been thinking. I’ve been thinking about empathy. Theres been a great deal of talk about how the current occupier of the white house lacks empathy. I’m not sure many people know what that means. When Bill Clinton said “I feel your pain” was that an example of empathy.
There are many definitions of empathy that encompass a broad range of emotional states, but basically it is our capacity to understand or feel what another person is experiencing.
What role does empathy play in today’s modern society? What is the role of empathy in business.
I’ve invited Minter dial, whose new book Heartificial Empathy answers many of those questions. So that’s what we’ll yak about today.
