The article on empathy does a great job of separating out "cognitive empathy" versus "emotional contagion". Both are lumped together under the word empathy - always a composite term. I agree with Paul Bloom that cognitive empathy - perceiving the internal states and needs of others - does a better job of enabling cooperation, compassion and justice than emotional contagion - feeling what others feel - which although useful, can cause burnout and compassion fatigue if overdone.
