Descripción Broadway Books, 2010. Estado de conservación: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "A pioneer in primate studies, Frans de Waal sees our better side in chimps, especially our capacity for empathy. In his research, Dr. de Waal has gathered ample evidence that our ability to identify with another''s distress -- a catalyst for compassion and charity -- has deep roots in the origin of our species. It is a view independently reinforced by recent biomedical studies showing that our brains are built to feel another''s pain." -Robert Lee Hotz, The Wall Street Journal "It's hard to feel the pain of the next guy. First, you have to notice that he existsthen realize that he has different thoughts than youand different emotionsand that he needs helpand that you should help because you'd like the same done for youand, wait, did I remember to lock the car?and Empathy is often viewed as requiring cognitive capacities for things like theory of mind, perspective taking and the golden rule, implying that empathy is pretty much limited to humans, and is a fairly fragile phenomenon in us. For decades, Frans de Waal has generated elegant data and thinking that show that this is wrong. In this superb book, he shows how we are not the only species with elements of those cognitive capacities, empathy is as much about affect as cognition, and our empathic humanity has roots far deeper than our human-ness." -Robert Sapolsky, author of Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers and A Primate's Memoir "The lessons of the economic meltdown, Hurricane Katrina, and other disasters may not be what you think: Biologically, humans are not selfish animals. For that matter, neither are animals, writes the engaging Frans de Waal, a psychology professor with proof positive that, like other creatures who hang out in herds, we''ve evolved to be empathetic. We don''t just hear a scream, it chills us to the bo when we see a smile, we answer with one of our own. THE AGE OF EMPATHY offers advice to cutthroat so-called realists: Listen to your inner ape." -O, The Oprah Magazine "Freshly topical.a corrective to the idea that all animals-human and otherwise-are selfish and unfeeling to the core." -The Economist "Without question, de Waal's essential findings should become part of mainstream conversation. But we need to go further by joining them with a radical political analysis, one that spells out the cultural mechanisms that give rise to an empathy-deficient society. Only then can we reclaim the continuity of morality that emerges so eloquently from these pages." -Gary Olson, The Baltimore Chronicle "De Waal, a renowned primatologist, knows the territory firsthand. He writes clearly and plays fair; he takes on the strongest arguments against him and is quick to acknowledge complexity. His book is popular science as it should be, far superior to the recent spate of "Darwin made me do it" books that purport to explain (or explain away) our behavior." -Edward Dolnick, Bookforum "De Waal is an excellent tour guide, refreshingly literate outside his field, deft at stitching bits of philosophy and anthropology into the narrative. He is also pleasingly opinionated; he seems to have columnist aspirations of his own, and his frequent usually thoughtful and balanced, occasionally facile digressions on morality and U.S. politics read like boilerplate New York Times editorials. Empathy, de Waal says, is one of our most innate capacities, one that likely evolved from mammalian parental care. It begins in the body, a deep unconscious synchrony between mother and child that sets the tone for so many mammalian interactions. When someone smiles, we smi when they yawn, we yawn; emotion is contagious." -Jeff Warren, Globe & Mail "Given the nature of business survival in a competitive world, de Waal''s clarion call that greed is out and empathy is in, may be a call we should all hear." -Ray Wlliams, Psychology Today "If Dawkins is Huxley's intellectual descendant, de Waal is certainly Kropotkin's.

Descripción Random House USA Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 202 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. An important and timely message about the biological roots of human kindness. --Desmond Morris, author of The Naked Ape Are we our brothers keepers? Do we have an instinct for compassion? Or are we, as is often assumed, only on earth to serve our own survival and interests? In this thought-provoking book, the acclaimed author of Our Inner Ape examines how empathy comes naturally to a great variety of animals, including humans. By studying social behaviors in animals, such as bonding, the herd instinct, the forming of trusting alliances, expressions of consolation, and conflict resolution, Frans de Waal demonstrates that animals-and humans-are preprogrammed to reach out. He has found that chimpanzees care for mates that are wounded by leopards, elephants offer reassuring rumbles to youngsters in distress, and dolphins support sick companions near the water s surface to prevent them from drowning. From day one humans have innate sensitivities to faces, bodies, and voices; we ve been designed to feel for one another. De Waal s theory runs counter to the assumption that humans are inherently selfish, which can be seen in the fields of politics, law, and finance, and whichseems to be evidenced by the current greed-driven stock market collapse. But he cites the public s outrage at the U.S. government s lack of empathy in the wake of Hurricane Katrina as a significant shift in perspective-one that helped Barack Obama become elected and ushered in what may well become an Age of Empathy. Through a better understanding of empathy s survival value in evolution, de Waal suggests, we can work together toward a more just society based on a more generous and accurate view of human nature. Written in layman s prose with a wealth of anecdotes, wry humor, and incisive intelligence, The Age of Empathy is essential reading for our embattled times. From the Hardcover edition.
