Empathy and Humans

This is perhaps the most awesome thing I've seen in months: a 10-minute animated/illustrated mini lecture on the evolution and progression of empathy in humans. Seriously, it's well worth watching.

For more, search for "RSA Animate" on YouTube - someone decided to animate lectures given at the (British) Royal Society for the encouragement of the Arts. Very cool pedagogical idea.

Thanks -- this is awesome and I'm sending the info out to all the teachers I work with.
