Quote of the day

“(…) The simple good-and-evil constructions in mythology, fiction, and storytelling are there because they offer clear orientation, but possibly at the cost of moral and social justice. The polarizing overdetermination of good and evil and related dichotomies make stories enjoyable. But at the same time social divisions are deepened and entrenched, which can lead to open conflicts.”

Fritz Breithaupt, author of The Dark Sides of Empathy and The Narrative Brain
