Schemel Forum World Affairs Luncheon Seminar, April 8

    Empathy in Politics: Does it Matter? If So, Why?
    Fred Logevall, Ph.D., Laurence D. Belfer Professor of International Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School and Professor of History

    A crucial attribute of political leadership, we're often told, is empathy- understanding the thoughts and feelings of others, including opponents, and being able to see the world through their eyes. Professor Logevall will point to some leaders in American history who had the capacity for empathy and used it effectively. He asks us to reflect on how we should think about that today.
