Or would this role only interfere with why we are on earth, which according to economists is to consume and reproduce, and according to biologists is to survive and reproduce?” The Age of Empathy has helped over 3 million people who struggle with showing that they care. Empathy can be a difficult concept to define, but drawing from fieldwork and experiences, De Waal proves that animals, like humans, are capable of feeling and caring for one another. Both animals and humans have been programmed to feel for others and have an instinct to care.
