Dwelling in Possibility

Paradox runs through a couple of the following essays and expands how we talk about “possibility” — including how we understand “newness” and how a therapist understands reactions to change.

In the next pages, you will find essays by rabbis, activists, and scholars, as well as paragraphs from an author and a scientist exploring what possibility means in their fields.

And we asked three writers to dream up first sentences for stories that feature the notion of possibility (we invite you to imagine how these stories might possibly end!).
