This work explores the concept of empathy, what empathy is and why it is important in relation to the field of education. The idea of a compassionate empathy, in which one moves from understanding to deeply caring, is examined as an essential component of creating a more just world. The ability to empathize is based on recognition and identification with another's feelings, beliefs or experience. In order to develop this type of compassionate knowing, it is important that a strong imagination be present. Simply put, without imagination empathy cannot exist. As with compassionate empathy, so too does the imagination need to be centered around care. Education can play a vital role in helping to foster a moral imagination. In this context, both the arts and media are explored as specific examples of tools for nurturing this type of imagination and empathy
