Empathy and Consciousness

About This Website

In a small discussion group among writers much of our discussion centered around empathy and character development. We all agreed it's the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. As writers and filmmakers it's what we hope to awaken among our readers for our characters.

At roughly the same time, the voice of research professor Brene Brown, Ph.D., LMSW appeared peppered across the Web and she prompted a further search for other voices addressing empathy. The result is this special collection on empathy which scientists are learning more about as they map the mind and our Society needs more of.
