disorder, autism, narcissism, psychosis, Asperger’s: all of these syndromes
have one thing in common—lack of empathy. In some cases, this absence can be
dangerous, but in others it can simply mean a different way of seeing the world.
In The Science of Evil Simon Baron-Cohen, an
award-winning British researcher who has investigated psychology and autism for
decades, develops a new brain-based theory of human cruelty. A true
psychologist, however, he examines social and environmental factors that can
erode empathy, including neglect and abuse.
Based largely on Baron-Cohen’s own research, The Science
of Evil will change the way we understand and treat human cruelty. Download and start listening now!
