Constructivism is based on the assumption that all knowledge exists only in the head of people as a construction based on personal experience. But how does mankind socialize this individual experience and make it collective? One way is narrating. From classic mythologies to Stendhal’s novels, these are all narrations, as we all know. But sociological analyses and journalistic chronicles are narrations too, as are historiographic reconstructions and the promises of politics, the dreams of film, and the paradises of marketing. Not to mention the closing arguments of court cases, television formats, and even scientific theories. This book looks for the deepest roots of narrative techniques both in narrations “of invention” and in narrations “of reality.”
