The Decline of Empathy and the Future of Liberal Education
Dolby, Nadine
Liberal Education, v99 n2 Spr 2013
By nurturing empathy through a liberal education, educators can help their students understand their connections to other humans, animals, and the planet--and perhaps, eventually, find their way back to themselves. The author often use case studies in her undergraduate classes. The author wrote a new case study called "Toys for Haiti." The "Toys for Haiti" case study suggests that the current culture suppresses the very capacity for empathy that the planet needs now for its very survival.
