The various types of empathy
May 11, 2019
The cases in point are great examples of empathy but the writer does go far for the Brazil story.
Other aspects were the tests that had been conducted to localize the brain reaction when empathy was the subject matter. The chapter on the robots is both scary (using empathetic robots to combat loneliness in seniors) and mind boggling to show where AI is going. Empathy seems, on the one hand, to be integral to the human make-up (Tim Horton's)and also a learned response, as in the case of the children with the baby. Thought- provoking book.
