Conversation Culture

What's happening

This discussion is open ended about stories. Possible discussion points:

What examples of stories do you enjoy and why (books, films etc)?

Do they serve a purpose? Distraction, reflection on real issues via sci fi etc.

The Hero’s Journey and also its subversion (e.g. Game of Thrones’ Ned Stark)

The anti hero (Breaking Bad, Paul Atreides in Dune)

Breaking the fourth wall - Deadpool, narrator addressing the audience (House Of Cards)

Do you think there’s any harm from them?

Do they provide you with personal inspiration or meaning or maybe cause you to feel bad about yourself (e.g. you feel compelled to live heroically or have some ultimate purpose like it happens in stories?)

There’s no set reading or viewing material for this. However, you may want to check out some videos from the YouTube Channel “Like Stories of Old”.

Just bring yourself and your reflections on stories.
