“Empathy is the imaginative act of stepping into the shoes of another person and viewing the world from their perspective.”
Intriguing new resource alert for rethinkers …* The Empathy Library: “the world’s first online empathy collection and a treasure house for catapulting your imagination into other people’s lives.” The Empathy Library, which was founded by writer and cultural thinker Roman Krznaric, “is full of recommended books to read (fiction, non-fiction and children’s books) and great films to watch (from feature films to documentaries and video shorts.” You can browse the library’s collection by theme, title, top ten charts or you can join the library “and become part of a worldwide community of empathic thinkers and activists. By joining you will be able to add items, comment and give ratings.” It will be interesting to see how this new resource shapes the empathy conversation (and actions!).
enjoy & rethink …*
