A brief introduction describes the centrality of narrative in our lives, and across human history, before foregrounding the key themes of the book and indicating its structure. It covers some basic definitions of humanism before proceeding. One of the key features of humanism is an exploratory vulnerability that seeks to find new ways to describe the complexities of human interaction, both in stories and in scholarship around stories – the introduction explains how this book will provide resources for achieving open listening to human otherness.
