Against Empathy: The Case for Rational Compassion

#ad
Ecco #ad - New york post best book of 2016we often think of our capacity to experience the suffering of others as the ultimate source of goodness. In against empathy, bloom reveals empathy to be one of the leading motivators of inequality and immorality in society. Basing his argument on groundbreaking scientific findings, when to go to war, yet misplaced, how to respond to climate change, Bloom makes the case that some of the worst decisions made by individuals and nations—who to give money to, and who to imprison—are too often motivated by honest, emotions.

. Many of our wisest policy-makers, activists, scientists, and philosophers agree that the only problem with empathy is that we don’t have enough of it. Nothing could be farther from the truth, argues Yale researcher Paul Bloom. We are at our best when we are smart enough not to rely on it, but to draw instead upon a more distanced compassion.

Against Empathy: The Case for Rational Compassion #ad - Without empathy, fairer, our decisions would be clearer, Bloom insists, and—yes—ultimately more moral. Brilliantly argued, against empathy shows us that, when it comes to both major policy decisions and the choices we make in our everyday lives, urgent and humane, limiting our impulse toward empathy is often the most compassionate choice we can make.

Far from helping us to improve the lives of others, empathy is a capricious and irrational emotion that appeals to our narrow prejudices. It muddles our judgment and, ironically, often leads to cruelty. With precision and wit, he demonstrates how empathy distorts our judgment in every aspect of our lives, from philanthropy and charity to the justice system; from medical care and education to parenting and marriage.

Down Girl: The Logic of Misogyny

#ad
Oxford University Press #ad - L. The book shows how these events, among others, set the stage for the 2016 US presidential election. It argues that misogyny should not be understood primarily in terms of the hatred or hostility some men feel toward all or most women. What is misogyny, exactly? who deserves to be called a misogynist? How does misogyny contrast with sexism, and why is it prone to persist - or increase - even when sexist gender roles are waning? This book is an exploration of misogyny in public life and politics by the moral philosopher and writer Kate Manne.

Not only was the misogyny leveled against hillary Clinton predictable in both quantity and quality, Manne argues it was predictable that many people would be prepared to forgive and forget regarding Donald Trump's history of sexual assault and harassment. Misogyny is a hot topic, yet it's often misunderstood.

Down Girl: The Logic of Misogyny #ad - Rather, it's primarily about controlling, punishing, policing, and exiling the "bad" women who challenge male dominance. For this, manne argues, threaten, is misogyny's oft-overlooked and equally pernicious underbelly: exonerating or showing "himpathy" for the comparatively privileged men who dominate, and silence women.

It's also common for women to serve as scapegoats, be burned as witches, and treated as pariahs. Manne examines recent and current events such as the isla vista killings by elliot rodger, then Prime Minister of Australia, Rush Limbaugh's diatribe against Sandra Fluke, the case of the convicted serial rapist Daniel Holtzclaw, who preyed on African-American women as a police officer in Oklahoma City, and the "misogyny speech" of Julia Gillard, which went viral on YouTube.

And it's compatible with rewarding "the good ones, " and singling out other women to serve as warnings to those who are out of order.
