We learn a lot from stories but not in a formal bookish way. Stories work in a much more subtle subconscious way. It’s as if we have learned through experience. They help us frame the world around us through metaphor.
Ideas often are truly understood and become alive through story. Consider the difference between reading a book on Judicial philosophy or watching a film like “12 angry men”. Stories make ideas alive enough that they can change our understanding of the world and our actions.
Why don’t you try using stories to communicate? Our animation Free to Live is just one example of how we have used story to introduce the ideas in the Guy Brandons book.
