Human societies have always been preoccupied with three main searches: the Search for Technology, the Search for Truth, and the Search for Meaning. Social structures; currents of action and thought;... More > philosophies; and history, all are driven and honed by the Three Searches. And the most frequent and conscious of these searches is that for Meaning. The Story is indispensable for the Search for Meaning. In this second part of The Story in Three Parts, John H.T.

More > stories we make up about some of the world’s events, stories that are for the most part either flawed or incomplete?

These are some of the important questions John H.T. Francis addresses in his new trilogy The Story in Three Parts. Faithful to his multi-disciplinary approach, intricate treatment of the subject, and modular and open style, the author looks at the existential role of the Story to human beings.
