I’ve been thinking about the role of narrative in constructing our shared world. With our contemporary epistemological crisis fueled by the rise of Trumpism, the normalization of lies, the spread of misinformation, along with the constant attack on the forth estate and the scientific enterprise, I’ve been trying to make sense of it from multiple perspectives with narrative as my starting point. Here are some of the more interesting books and articles I have come across as I make sense of our contemporary epistemological crisis that plays out with our deeply divided political landscape, each tribe living in their own reality, incommensurable with the others.
I originally posted the bibliography here as a blog post, however, I have moved to a shared Google Doc so that I can update it regularly and the link will always point to the latest version, you can now find it at https://tinyurl.com/mmm-biblio and I welcome comments and suggestions.
