Thinking Society: The Truth in Stories
December 2, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Hugh Taft-Morales, PES members, and members of the Greater Philadelphia Thinking Society for an exploration of “The Truth in Stories.” The evening will begin with opening remarks by CJ Fearnley and Hugh Taft-Morales, along with a few video clips of historian and mythographer Marina Warner discussing this topic. If you wish, you can see her whole 54-minute lecture here.
Come discuss the nature of storytelling and the fabulist arts as a form of inquiry. When story takes a speculative form, does it become fantasy with a prospective, forecasting view? Are imaginative stories the tools of truth-telling? Is there a truth of the imagination? Come discuss this and much more!
