We Are Narrative
This is the social psychology blog home of Andy 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. My original intent for the site was simply to provide a root home and easy reference for all my publicly offered writings, which are mainly published works of Science Fiction, plus my Guest Posts on Social Psychology (with a focus on the climate change domain) that are mirrored from vastly more widely read blogs; both of these areas being inspired by the fascinating area of cultural mechanics / memetics. Indeed the name of the blog stems from my interest in memetics and self-evolving narratives, and the ‘subsuming’ of part of our ‘individual selves’ to such narrative. This is itself a branch of evolutionary science, a passionate hobby of mine. The Social Psychology contributions address generic issues such as ‘innate skepticism’ and ‘denialism’ as well as covering specifics within the climate change domain. Update Nov 18: the main activity (such as it is!) here has been the social psychology side, so the fiction works (mostly old) have been shunted off. At some point soon there needs to be a shift to a completely new WordPress template as this old one is not properly supported on newer devices.
