Joachim  Bauer - Feeling the World


Why individualism will fail and an empathetic society will prevail

The world is changing. Events such as the Corona pandemic, which is just a small part of a larger ecological crisis, are frightening and make us realise how vulnerable humans are. Yet, they also let us feel solidarity, the social ability deeply rooted in the homo sapiens. We call this emotion empathy. It is the very core of our human nature and of a culture of social communion.

Bestselling author and award-winning scientist Joachim Bauer explains in his new book how empathy is embedded in our nature and why it is the solution to social and global problems. During the recent part of human history, we've also forgotten how to feel with the world. We need to rediscvoer this ability to be able to face the current challenges and those to come.

"The way he describes the scientific findigns on [...] the inner and outer world reads like a thriller."
