Language and social intelligence

May 10, 2017

Reading literature that delves into the inner lives of its characters may increase social intelligence. If so, how has the evolution of literature affected what modern people are?

Greg Laden is one of the few people who accurately parses the reason Trump gave for firing Comey. I suspect that gets blurred because no one believes the given reason is the actual reason, so don’t pay it much attention anyway. But even pretense is a real social act, and reveals something about the pretender.
