THE AGE OF EMPATHY Nature's Lessons for a Kinder Society

by | Read by Alan Sklar

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Biologist and ethologist Frans de Waal examines the role of empathy in human society and the animal world. Alan Sklar delivers an in-depth narration of fascinating stories about the ability of mammals to show sincere empathy, as well as examples portraying the lack of empathy sometimes displayed by humans. Sklar makes his way through scientific terms and Dutch phrases with accuracy and skill. The author feels that a more empathetic society would provide the deep human contact that many people need and find lacking today. He provides timely examples of the recent financial meltdown and the selfishness of so many involved. Can humans learn from animals? As this analysis introduces listeners to the earliest mammals, fascinating connections emerge. B.J.P. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2010]
