It's Hard-Wired: Humans Need Stories
"It is in our nature to need stories. They are our earliest sciences, a kind of people-physics. Their logic is how we naturally think. They configure our biology, and how we feel, in ways long essential for our survival. Like our language instinct, a story drive - an inborn hunger for story hearing and story making - emerges untutored universally in healthy children." Scientific American 05/08/13
