The Empathic Civilization

Social thinker and author Jeremy Rifkin’s book "The Empathic Civilization: The Race to Global Consciousness in a World in Crisis" looks at emerging scientific studies that show humans are not naturally aggressive and self-interested, but fundamentally empathetic. Rifkin’s book is a new interpretation of the history of civilization, focusing on the development of human empathy through the present time.
