The Power of Empathy and Sympathy

Or how to create create meaningful connections and manage your boundaries

In today’s episode, we are getting into the world of empathy and sympathy. These two emotions play crucial roles in our social interactions, relationships, and personal well-being. I’ll be looking at what they actually are, taking a look at what philosophy has to say on the matter, and exploring their place in psychology.

We’ll also be looking at the pros and cons of each and trying to work out which one is better.

As an aside, you’ll be pleased to hear that the book is in it’s final stages and will be hitting the Apple Bookstore in the next few weeks. I’m doing the last bit of typesetting and getting it looking like a sparkly tome of psychological wisdom. When it’s ready, you’ll be able to purchase it on theobservingi.com and I’ll drop the link to it on Apple Books in a future update.

Much love,
David
