Concrete illustrations of complex theories
June 6, 2012 12:26 PM Subscribe
Other examples of true stories like Krugman's babysitting co-op
and Radford's POW camp
that illustrate complex and abstract truths, theories, and ideas with concrete language and more tangible, familiar, or interesting situations?

I'm compiling these for an article. Looking for real-life stories mainly. But perhaps more involved literary examples may do. (Aesop's fables may be too simple; The examples above are quite complex.) Thanks!
