Abstract:

[This book] provides contemporary perspectives on the three related domains of empathy, compassion, and self-compassion (ECS). It informs current research, stimulates further research endeavors, and encourages continued and creative philosophical and scientific inquiry into the critical societal constructs of ECS. Examining the growing number of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and electrocortical (EEG Power Spectral, Coherence, Evoked Potential, etc.) studies and the sizeable body of exciting neuroendocrine research (e.g., oxytocin, vasopressin) that has accumulated over the past decades, this text is a unique and comprehensive approach to empathy, compassion, and self-compassion. -- Back cover.
