Alvin Finkel: Compassion: A Global History

February 10, 2019

Topic: Compassion: A Global History

Speaker: Alvin Finkel

Service Leader: Terry Anderson

Musician: Harmonia

Societies across time and place have had different ways of demonstrating (or in many cases failing to demonstrate) compassion for the unfortunate. This talk provides an international overview of how humans have responded to the destitute among them over a hundred thousand years. It is based on Alvin Finkel’s just-released book, Compassion: A Global History of Social Policy, published by Palgrave Macmillan (UK).
