I'm crossing Sweden as usual in the Bus4You doubledecker and discover that the New York Times has yet another column on empathy, this time by Thomas Friedman. I filed a comment that contains a line referring to an assertion by psychology professor and author Paul Bloom (see Room for Debate 12/29 and review of Bloom's new book on empathy.
The assertion by Bloom: We can only/find it easiest to empathise with people who look like us. He says that is what the research shows.
Not at all true for me, how about you?
