21st Century Enlightenment

December 14, 2010

Several months back I posted a wonderful video from RSAnimate The Empathic Civilization. Though this video is not a “Part II” there are some interesting interconnected themes as Matthew Taylor explores the meaning of 21st century enlightenment, how the idea might help us meet the challenges we face today, and the role that can be played by organisations such as the RSA.

Money quote (among many), “Fostering empathic capacity is just as important to achieving a world of citizens at peace with each other and themselves.”
