Against Empathy synopsis

In a divided world, empathy is not the solution, it is the problem. Think about empathy - the ability to feel the suffering of others for ourselves - as the ultimate source of all good behavior.

But while it inspires care and protection in personal relationships, it has the opposite effect in the wider world. As the latest research in psychology and neuroscience shows, we are more sympathetic to those we find attractive and who resemble us in an unmatched way and to those who are different, distant or unknown.

Thus, empathy favors the individuals we know while deceiving us in the plight of thousands. Paul Blum, guided by experience through experiences, case studies and arguments from all sides, tells us that some of our worst decisions - in philanthropy, child rearing, criminal justice, climate change and war - are stimulated by this wolf in sheep's clothing.

He argues brilliantly, urgently and humanity, against "empathy" overturning large-scale assumptions to reveal one of the deepest sources of human conflict deeper yet overlooked.
