I was in Colchester on Friday for the Graduate Conference on Morality, Ethics, and Social Order, co-organised by Effix Girl herself, Becky P.

Although some of the stuff (particluarly Kant, and more advanced Habermas) was beyond me, there was some interesting use of the idea of myth and mythology in relation to the projection of reason and truth. Some rather useful references for the utility of myth in social change, but also its mass-psychological aspects (e.g. that myth perceived as myth can still be strongly effective).
