Introspection is out, and outrospection is in. In this RSA video, Philosopher and author Roman Krznaric explains how we can help drive social change by stepping outside ourselves through Empathy.
Roman says 98% of people have the ability to empathise. But few of us use our full empathic potential.
In his book "Empathy: A Handbook for Revolution" he describes the six habits of highly empathic people, showing how empathy can be used to improve our relationships, boost our creativity and tackle social problems from everyday prejudice to violent conflicts.
Drawing on over 10 years of research, Roman explains how babies can teach empathy, how our empathic brains work and writes about his plans create the world’s first Empathy Museum.
Roman Krznaric is an internationally renowned expert on empathy and author of 'Empathy: A Handbook for Revolution'. He is a founding faculty member of The School of Life and founder of the world's first digital Empathy Library.
