Using compelling examples and analysis, How We Use Stories and Why That Matters shows what the New York Shakespeare Riots tell us about class struggle, what Death Cab for Cutie tells us about media, what Kate Moss's wedding dress tells us about authorship, and how Westworld and Humans imagine very different futures for Artificial Intelligence: one based on slavery, the other on class. Together, these knowledge stories tell us about how intimate human communication is organised and used to stage organised conflict, to test the 'fighting fitness' of contending groups – provoking new stories, identities and classes along the way. This book guides the reader through the tangled undergrowth of communication and cultural expression towards a new understanding of the role of group-mediating stories at global and digital scale. It argues that media and networked systems perform and bind group identities, creating bordered fictions within which economic and political activities are made meaningful. Now that computational and global scale, big data, metadata and algorithms rule the roost even in culture, subjectivity and meaning, we need population-scale frameworks to understand individual, micro-scale sense-making practices. To achieve that, we need evolutionary and systems approaches to understand cultural performance and dynamics. The opposing universes of fact (science, knowledge, education) and fiction (entertainment, story and imagination) – so long separated into the contrasting disciplines of natural sciences and the humanities – can now be understood as part of one turbulent sphere of knowledge-production and innovation.

She has amassed a fortune, defined and defied fashion mores and proved wrong those who predicted her downfall. Her image is everywhere: compelling and enigmatic. But though she has become one of the most recognized women in the world, she remains the least understood. By her own admission, 'The more visible they make me, the less visible I become.' From her discovery at the age of fourteen, when her waif-life look was considered 'uncommercial', to finding international fame as a supermodel and her position today as an arbiter of fashion, this book examines Kate's ever changing career and the cultural impact she has had. It describes her turbulent relationships with Johnny Depp and Jefferson Hack, the media frenzy over her time with Pete Doherty and her on/off relationship with Jamie Hince. Based on in-depth research, including candid conversations with friends and family, Laura Collins has written the first definitive biography of one of the most glamorous women of our time.
