The Compassionate Temperament by Natan Sznaider
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The argument of this book is that it is in the nature of modernity to foster compassion. Most critics tend to think of modernity as corrosive of moral sentiments. They see clearly the way in which modernity breaks down older social bonds, but they are much less attentive to the ways in which it also builds new ones. This book offers a historically informed corrective to this common view.
