A Time for Empathy
Why do our differences drive so much violence and division in society? Writer and psychologist Charles Fernyhough believes words can engender more compassion, and in Others, an anthology of newly-commissioned writing, he aims to prove it. He’s joined by Colin Grant, Will Storr and Marina Warner to discuss the stories, poems and essays they’ve contributed to a collection exploring everything from xenophobia to urban isolation to neurodiversity.
