Last week, I attended the one-day conference on How The Social Brain Experiences Empathy, hosted by the University of Chicago’s Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience. A concern shared by many of the presenters there was the pro-social outcomes of empathy, such as altruism. What I find interesting about Dr. Keen’s work, in contrast, is the value she finds in the process of narrative empathy as an end-in-itself. I had hoped to meet her last week when I visited Chicago, and now I wish that I had also visited San Marcos.
