Hmmm. So I’m doing a little bit of research (okay, a whole lotta research) on the affective domain in education…it’s a long story, and if you’re really curious about why I care, you can read about it here. Little ole me even has something to say there 🙂
Anyway, I ran across this provocative video. It’s a little long, but if you’re intellectually curious and willing to sit through 10 minutes of nerdiness, I promise it’s interesting. And thought-provoking.
Enjoy. I did…and I’m going to be thinking about it for a while. I welcome your comments.

That needs to be watched again…and again…but I kept thinking that this empathy is why everyone, including many Christians, don’t want to take a stand against SSA or SSM because we just want everyone else to be happy and have what we have.
Please pardon my grammar and spelling. Yikes!
Realy fascinating presentation. Empathy. Perhaps I am being parochial but I see this as consistent with the Christian gospel. It is more fundamental than the golden rule and taps into the evolutionary progression the author describes. Raises interesting questions: did Christ come when he did because the human race was ready for him? 2000 years ago we were ready to think beyond tribe. I need to think more on this. Maria, thanks for sharing this!
wow…I was having similar thoughts.
Whoa! That’s good stuff! I believe that empathy is the root of forgiveness. Sharing this with my global community. Thanks!
hmmm.I like that.
