45 | The story of an insight

There's a lot that's been written on the nature of insights—what they are, how they work (in terms of cognition), what they mean, how they relate to ontology, epistemology and other -ologies. Bernard Lonergan's monster—I mean, master—work "Insight" is just one example. But, at their most basic, insights seem to me to be experiences and stories. This podcast explores the story/experience of just one insight and then offers (albeit very briefly) a few considerations for what, in my experience, helps to make insights possible. Since zombie movies have something to do with this, you can (if you want) read an article that I've written on the subject of zombies: http://repository.up.ac.za/bitstream/handle/2263/43543/Reyburn_Reconfiguring_2014.pdf?sequence=1&isAllowed=y .
