Paul Bloom “Against Empathy”

Paul Bloom, the Brooks and Suzanne Ragen Professor of Psychology at Yale University, discusses his argument against empathy in favor of the fruits of mindfulness. “Mindfulness makes you nicer because it shuts down empathic centers of brain, so you can access compassion.” Bloom is the author of “Against Empathy: The Case for Rational Compassion.”
