Significance of Empathy

A new book by Boston College alumnus Joseph Palmisano, SJ, (Class of 1997), was celebrated at a book launch event held at Boston College-Ireland earlier this fall. In the book, Beyond the Walls: Abraham Joshua Heschel and Edith Stein on the Significance of Empathy for Jewish-Christian Dialogue, Fr. Palmisano draws from the writings of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel and Edith Stein to offer an in-depth examination of the significance of empathy for Jewish-Christian understanding. Fr. Palmisano is a post-doctoral teaching and research fellow at the Irish School of Ecumenics at Trinity College Dublin.
