The Evolution of Stories

Date: 2:30 pm | Saturday 8 October 2011

Venue: Hetzel Theatre


Art and literature are, by definition, artificial things. People lavish a lot more effort and attention on them than really makes sense in practical terms. Are they just extras, mere entertainment designed to fill a bit of time? Or are they adaptations that, through play, help the human mind develop power and complexity, even wisdom? How do stories play a role in human evolution?
