"Why Is the U.S. Government Interested in Storytelling?"

"According to an impenetrable special notice from the D.S.O. of the D.A.R.P.A. of the D.O.D. (that’s the Defense Sciences Office of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency of the U.S. Department of Defense), the government wants to turn literary criticism into an exact science. D.A.R.P.A. invited interested literary theorists, anthropologists, sociologists, psychologists, political scientists, and related “ists” to the Boar’s Head Inn in Charlottesville, Virginia, last month to answer a question frequently posed to junior-high-school students: “What is a story?” "

"Neurobiology of Narrative Framing"


Spying or storytelling?

via: Critical Thinker

Project: Neurobiology of Narrative Framing

"A listener's psychological reaction to narrated events is influenced by how the narrator frames the events, appealing to different values, knowledge, and experiences of the listener. Narrative framing that targets the sacred values of the listener, including core personal, nationalistic, and/or religious values, is particularly effective at influencing the listener's interpretation of narrated events. These values are closely tied with the psychology of identity, emotion, moral decision making, and social cognition. When sacred framing is applied to mundane issues, those issues can gain properties of sacred values and result in a strong aversion to using conventional reasoning to interpret them. In our research, we seek to understand the linguistic and neuropsychological mechanisms underlying the effectiveness of narrative framing using sacred values in influencing a listener's interpretation of events."
