Empathy and cruelty: a roaring tale of causality and emotions!
Zero Degrees of Empathy: A new theory of human cruelty
is a recent book by Simon Baron-Cohen, professor of Developmental Psychopathology at Cambridge.
Its summary and a
long review article
suggest interesting food for thought in little explored realms on the border between social science and science.
However, it's hard to buy the proposition: black is to white similarly to what autism is to empathy, that seems to characterise the book.
To be read and then TBC!
