Empathic Civilization

There is a new book out, which might be interesting, although not dealing expressly with faith and religion:

Historians, by and large, write about social conflict and wars, great heroes and evil wrongdoers, technological progress and the exercise of power, economic injustices and the redress of social grievances. When historians touch on philosophy, it is usually in relationship to the disposition of power. Rarely do we hear of the other side of the human experience that speaks to our deeply social nature and the evolution and extension of human affection and its impact on culture and society.

Thus begins the excerpt. The rest can be found here:

‘Empathic Civilization’ Excerpt: Homo-Empathicus, The Big Story That Historians Missed.
