Enhancement or empathy education? From pedagogical anthropology to educational practices
In the last twenty years human enhancement has become one of the major themes in applied ethics. In this contribution I discuss a specific form of enhancement, the ethical one, in particular the empathy enhancement, understood as one of the possible motivations of morally oriented actions. I propose some arguments to sustain that the educational processes are preferable to biochemical enhancement practices. Finally, I focus on some suggestions that can inspire educational practices, in order to cultivate the multiple and complex dimensions that underlie the concept of empathy.
