Roman Krznaric / Empathy: Why It Matters and How to Get It
Hillside Club
Berkeley, CA
Share this event:




A founding faculty member of London's The School of Life, and Greater Good contributing writer, Roman Krznaric has traveled the world researching and lecturing on the subject of empathy.

In EMPATHY, Krznaric argues that our brains are wired for social connection and that empathy, not apathy or self-centeredness, is at the heart of who we are. Informed by powerful examples from the worlds of art and design, medicine and humanitarianism, neuroscience, and more, Krznaric presents six habits of highly empathetic people in his book  which anyone can emulate in order to make themselves, and the world, more truly fulfilled.

"Where would humanity be without empathy? Our lives would be disconnected, our societies would fall apart. Growing planetary integration calls for us to pay more attention to this ancient mammalian capacity, and Roman Krznaric is our expert guide to explain how it works and how to fix the deficit that faces humanity today."  -- Frans de Waal, author of The Age of Empathy

Roman Krznaric's previous books are How Should We Live? Great Ideas from the Past for Everyday Life and How to Find Fulfilling Work, part of a new practical philosophy series edited by Alain de Botton.

Books will be available for purchase; book signing follows the program.
