"Age of Empathy" by Frans de Waal
Why should we care? Why should we show compassion? Survival of the fittest, right? Wrong! "None of this is keeping with the old way", as de Waal puts it. Cooperation...It's only natural!
It has been thought that life is merely about survival of the most fit, even for humans. However, with the "Age of Empathy", Frans de Waal details how it is natural for humans to behave in ways that exemplify cooperation, teamwork, and compassion. De Waal outlines how, despite how it may seem at times, humans are actually compassionate and cooperative. It's not just an idea, it's biology! Unlike other books that often depict humans as if they are in a constant, malicious struggle of life and death with one another, de Waal shows, with SCIENCE, that this is just not true! In fact, humans are meant to be social, and compassionate! It will change your whole outlook on life and biology!
- Sharing is caring
