Storytelling

I agree with Cassie that storytelling is the root of everything. People are born with stories read to them, told to them. I just don’t get how it could be part of these other ‘ways of knowing’. Well, I do agree that it is a way of knowing. But I think telling stories is involved in almost anything, so it could be part of all the other ways of knowing. As when you learn history, you learn it through people telling you stories, listening to stories in a movie or reading them in a book. When you are told by authority, aren’t you told by them telling you a story most of the time? Sense and perception, you feel something or sense something and relate it to a story that happened before so you know what to feel or expect. I think storytelling is a subunit of all these other ways of knowing is like a method that it happens, not a new way of ‘knowing’ itself.
