The Age of Outrospection — Philosopher Roman Krznaric

In this short RSA Animate video, philosopher Roman Krznaric explains how we can help drive social change by stepping outside ourselves. He believes we need to shift from the age of introspection to the age of outrospection.

Empathy isn’t just something that expands your moral universe. Empathy is something that can make you a more creative thinker, improve your relationships, can create the human bonds that make life worth living. But, more than that, empathy is also about social change — radical social change.

Krznaric is the author of How to Find Fulfilling Work.
