TEDxOKC - Dr. Robin Meyers - "The Empathic Imagination: Escaping the Prison of Self"

Dr. Meyers is a tenured Professor in the philosophy department at Oklahoma City University and the Senior Minister at Mayflower UCC Church. Dr. Meyer is also a syndicated columnist, an award winning commentator for NPR and the author of six books. At TEDxOKC he discussed the idea that the failure to develop the empathic imagination is a universal precursor to violence. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxOKC, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxOKC event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
