William Shatner: Empathy must be taught

This post was originally published on this site

  • Empathy is defined as the act of recognizing, understanding, and being sensitive to the feelings and experiences of others.
  • Sharing a story about young elephants at a nature preserve, William Shatner argues that empathy is a learned skill, not an inherited trait.
  • “That has to be learned, and I don’t think it’s any different from a boy to a girl. You have to walk in the shoes to experience what the other person is experiencing.”
