Empathy PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Empathy free pdf Empathy has long been a topic of interest to psychologists, but it has been studied in a sometimes bewildering number of ways. In this volume, Mark Davis offers a thorough, evenhanded review of contemporary empathy research, especially work that has been carried out by social and personality psychologists. Davis approach is explicitly multidimensional. He draws careful distinctions between situational and dispositional antecedents of empathy, cognitive and noncognitive internal processes, affective and nonaffective intrapersonal outcomes, and the interpersonal behavioral outcomes that follow. Davis presents a novel organizational model to help classify and interpret previous findings. This book will be of value in advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on altruism, helping, nad moral development.
