A new way to think about empathy

Another stimulating offering from TED talks.

This one is given by Simon Baron Cohen – renowned developmental physchologist from Cambridge university. The video is not about drama per se. Rather, Baron Cohen gives us useful new way of thinking about how empathy works. I particularly enjoyed his distinction between cognitve and affective forms of empathy. You will end up quoting this one in the staffroom. Enjoy!
