Empathy: College students don’t have as much as they used to

Today’s college students are not as empathetic as college students of the 1980s and ’90s, a University of Michigan study shows.

La Life’s insight:
Empathy with things other than oneself may well be a key purpose of knowledge. In French, to "understand" is not etymologically to "support" or "provide a foundation" (under-stand), but to "take together", "take with" (com-prendre). It’s a big difference. And knowledge is for understanding.
