What Do The Stories We Tell Say About Ourselves And Others?
“[…] As Adrianna Cavarero contends, we are dependent on each other to narrate our lives (1997) … The stories we tell about ourselves, about others, about world events, about the past, about our political beliefs, about our identities are not just simply social and political constructions but elaborations of our psychic dramas. Also, if our stories always implicate the other – because our humanity is made relationally – how do we narrate our stories ethically? How do we recognize the alterity of the other in our stories all the while recognizing our dependency on the other?”
