On empathy

My interest in empathy is mostly related to my curiosity about the relationship between emotions and language learning and due to the link between narratives and empathy. Recently I saw two different points of view on empathy and wanted to share them with you. They gave me a lot to think about.
The first one is psychologist Paul Bloom's article on the matter in New Yorker (you can read here) and the second one is Jeremy Rifkin's talk, accompanied by RSA Animate's animation. If you want to listen the whole talk you can watch it here
