Maia Szalavitz: Dialogs on How to Build a Culture of Empathy
Coauthor: Born for Love: Why Empathy Is

If I was president, thank god I'm
not, I would start a Manhattan Project on global empathy. It has the
urgency of the Manhattan Project. It needs the bringing together of
the best minds in the world to focus on this issue, because there is
