I really enjoyed these articles explanations regarding storytelling. Making storytelling applicable to all realms of our world simplifies things – we no longer need to fret with lengthy explanations, instead we can just tell a story.
This was especially wonderful when considering science. It changed my perspective. I am not of fan of following the recipe. I like to spice it up. Make it better. In compliance with the recipe of the scientific method… it’s best to save the seasoning for later. However, making storytelling a part of science takes it out of science all together. I don’t feel suffocated by the weight and exactitude science carries. Now, I feel as though this is art. Similar to our explorations in class, scientific storytelling abides by constraints.
So it’s the same recipe, but in a different context. And this context seems better.
