Abstract
This paper takes empathy as the breach to explore the evolution on social psychology in a risk society, analyzing how empathy influences the public opinion in recent years . The study holds that "empathy" is the motive mechanism for a series of events triggering public opinion in China which evolve from a single event to a event triggering public opinion. Because some common social problems are faced by Chinese people in the transitional period, people tend to unconsciously build a community of shared future for mankind. Otherwise, people pay more attention to others and worry about the society in which they live.
