Culture of Empathy Builder:  Steve Taylor

Steve Taylor & Edwin Rutsch: Dialogs on How to Build a Culture of Empathy with Spirituality
Steve Taylor is a lecturer in psychology at Leeds Metropolitan University, and the author of several best-selling books on psychology and spirituality.
Author: The Fall

"Just as the lack of empathy makes cruelty and oppression possible, the presence of empathy heals conflict. The ability to empathize makes us truly human, and the wider it stretches - from victims to offenders, from one ethnic group to another, from nation to nation and religion to religion - the less brutal and more harmonious a place the world will become."

March 24, 2012:  Empathy: The Ability that Makes us Truly Human
"Just as the lack of empathy makes cruelty and oppression possible, the presence of empathy heals conflict. The ability to empathise makes us truly human, and the wider it stretches - from victims to offenders, from one ethnic group to another, from nation to nation and religion to religion - the less brutal and more harmonious a place the world will become."

 

 

Back to Sanity: The Power of Empathy; Healing Conflict through Connection
"For me, this highlights the enormous significance of empathy. To a large extent, all human brutality all oppression, cruelty and most crime is the result of a lack of empathy. It's a lack of empathy which makes someone capable of attacking, robbing, raping or oppressing another human being. It's a lack of empathy for another tribe or country which makes warfare and conflict possible. It's a lack of empathy towards other ethnic groups, social classes or castes what makes oppression and inequality possible."
