Where is the boundary between reality and fiction? (Constantine Nakassis‪)‬ Pulled Up Short

    • Education

Featuring Constantine V. Nakassis (guest) with Stanton Wortham (host) and Michael Lempert (commentator). 

We often feel that there is a sharp distinction between the world of fiction and the "real world." For example, is there really any doubt that the Marvel superheroes are not real, that they only live in fictional representations? Costantine Nakassis, however, draws our attention to the unsettling, though common ways in which we blur the boundary between fact and fiction all the time. Join Constantine in exploring the boundary between reality and representation.
