Why isn’t everyone concerned about the welfare of all people, everywhere? Is global compassion a gift, like musical talent, a virtue of the few? Or might we all have the potential for global compassion within us, dormant? Moving Toward Global Compassion explores these possibilities, and offers a new take on empathy and altruism. In the closing chapter the Dalai Lama discusses these ideas with the author.
