dc.description.abstractAdelaide Festival of Ideas session, Hetzel Lecture Theatre, 2:30pm, Saturday 8th October, 2011. Chaired by Robert Phiddian, poetry read by Erica Jolly. Art and literature are, by definition, artificial things. People lavish a lot more effort and attention on them than really makes sense in practical terms. Are they just extras, mere entertainment designed to fill a bit of time? Or are they adaptations that, through play, help the human mind develop power and complexity, even wisdom? How do stories play a role in human evolution?en
