內容簡介

全球不斷擴增的人口,不停地消耗地球有限的資源,貧窮與戰爭使我們憂心,數位溝通使我們的社交活動更為複雜,我們的耐心與同情心受到了挑戰,”同理心”有可能是這些問題的解藥之一。透過最新的科學研究,作者認為,藝術與大眾文化可以填補各族群間缺乏同理心的鴻溝,使我們成為更好的人。

「如果我們希望正視這個時代的道德試煉,我想我們應該討論更多關於”同理心缺乏”的課題。(所謂的同理心就是)我們能夠把自己放在他人的立場,透過他人的雙眼來看這個世界。」- 美國前總統歐巴馬

「彼得爵士主張,政客與大眾也應該明白,人類的某些天性最好由與藝術和人文等相關事物來培養。」-《星期天泰晤士報》

同理心是理解他人的能力,想像自己能夠進入他人的情感之中,這是基本的人類特質,如果沒有同理心,相互合作的社會就無法運作。透過核磁共振掃描器,我們能夠為人腦造影,因此可以知曉誰有同理心,誰沒有,還有為什麼沒有。透過這個科技新領域,我們可以保護深受網路影響的青少年、發展更好的兒童照護系統、司法體系、以及健全的健保制度,並且解決種族主義與衝突。

本書涵蓋內容甚廣,且以許多有趣的故事來解釋最新的科學研究,作者Peter Bazalgette為藝術與大眾文化辯護,認為它們是填補同理心鴻溝的方法。

'If we hope to meet the moral test of our times, then I think we're going to have to talk more about the "empathy deficit". The ability to put ourselves in somebody else's shoes, to see the world through somebody else's eyes . . .' Barack Obama

Empathy is the power of understanding others, imaginatively entering into their feelings. It is a fundamental human attribute, without which mutually co-operative societies cannot function. In a revolutionary development, we now know who has it, who lacks it and why. Via the MRI scanner we are mapping the human brain. This is a new frontier that reveals a host of beneficial ideas for childcare, teens challenged by the internet, the justice system, decent healthcare, tackling racism and resolving conflicts.

In this wide-ranging and accessible book full of entertaining stories that are underlined by the latest scientific research, Peter Bazalgette also mounts a passionate defence of arts and popular culture as a means of bridging the empathy gap.

As the world's population expands, consuming the planet's finite resources, as people haunted by poverty and war are on the move and as digital communications infinitely complicate our social interactions, we find our patience and our sympathy constantly challenged. Here is the antidote.

Culminating in a passionate manifesto on empathy, The Empathy Instinct is what makes us human and what can make us better humans.
