Topic: Compassion: A Global History
Speaker: Alvin Finkel
Service Leader: Terry Anderson
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).
