The Interview With Angus Fletcher 🎙️: https://atlasgeographica.com/angus-fletcher-wonderworks/
Angus Fletcher joined me on 'A Curious Worldview' recently. He is, among many other things, the author of the wonderfully insightful book - Wonderworks: 25 Powerful Inventions In The History Of Literature.
Angus has been involved in a 'rouge literary' group known as project narrative for some time and as consequence now and then throughout his career has been involved in the writing and editing of both popular and unpopular Hollywood scripts. Angus is a trained neuroscientist and it is from this perspective he approaches his understanding of literature.
What Angus has done is uncover inventions of literature that until now have only been understood on an instinctual level. Angus has measured what certain styles and techniques of literature do to the brain. How empathy is trained through literature. Why apologies are effective. Things along these lines. It's brilliant.
