The Cost of Compassion PB Re-Considering by Tim Costello
Who’s in favour of compassion?
Pretty much everybody, actually. Left or right, religious or not, nobody seems to have a bad word to say about compassion.
So why do we have so much trouble addressing the conflict, inequality, and suffering in our world?
Ranging from the streets of St Kilda to the slums of Delhi, from Plato to Nietzsche, the Dalai Lama to Peter Singer, and from Seinfeld to the Good Samaritan, Tim Costello appeals to our common humanity – and takes an unflinching look at how costly compassion can be.
