Join us for a special screening of Alex Gabbay’s documentary film, Love, Hate and Everything In Between.
The screening will be followed by an audience Q&A with Alex Gabbay, Mary Gordon, founder and president, Roots of Empathy and Simon Baron Cohen, professor of developmental pyschopathology, University of Cambridge.
Man’s capacity for kindness and compassion is overshadowed only by his ability to be as cruel and destructive. Can empathy resolve issues of aggression and subjugation, where wars, politics and economic sanctions have failed?
New research in neuroscience, psychology, education and technology suggests it might.
Mary Gordon, founder of Roots of Empathy, a classroom programme for children, says: “The developmental health and wealth of nations rests on the breath of children. If we don’t help children develop empathy we’re in big trouble.”
Psychologist and autism expert Simon Baron Cohen explains: “A new way of looking at empathy is to think of it as a continuum…or a spectrum. The question scientists need to address is, what determines where you are on that spectrum.”
'Love, Hate and Everything In Between' explores the nature, role and relevance of empathy in society today.
