We Are Narrative
This is the social psychology blog home of Andy A. West.
In truth I have little time to blog or encourage traffic here, and although comments are welcome there has indeed been little traffic over the years. The site simply provides a root home and easy reference for most of my publicly offered writings, which are mainly Guest Posts on social psychology that has a strong focus on the climate-change domain. These are mirrored from widely read blogs, mainly Judith Curry’s diverse and deep ‘Climate Etc.’ and Anthony Watts’ hugely popular ‘Watts Up With That’ (WUWT).
The name of this blog stems from my interest in self-evolving cultural narratives, and the group behaviours these invoke in us. In that sense the content is as much about cultural evolution as social psychology. The former is essentially a branch of evolutionary science, a long-term strong interest of mine. Posts address generic issues such as the nature of ‘innate skepticism’ and ‘denialism’, as well as covering specifics within the climate-change domain. At some point I really need to shift to a completely new WordPress template as this old one is not properly supported on newer devices, but I never seem to get around to it.
P.S. there’s also a free Sci-Fi / Cli-Fi novelette with a climate psychology theme, reviewed at Climate Etc and also featuring at WUWT, back around end 2012 / beginning 2013.
