Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I would call it empathy.

I would really recommend that you get hold of Adam Smith's Theory of Moral Sentiments. It's a cute little book, and it touches upon many aspects of how cultural baggage affects (or doesn't, as the case may be) how one views the world. But do get an unabridged edition - Smith is very thorough; his logic starts on the first page and finishes on the last page, with very little superfluous fluff in between.
