Abstract

Ever since R.Rorty published The Linguistic Turn in 1967, the study of narrative has acquired new consideration. For postmodern philosopher J-F. Lyotard the very advances of science are seen "as anything more than a narrative and not one that can override all others� (Lyotard, 1984, 16). In the last two decades the attention of scholars has focused upon the ability of narrative of modelling our concepts of legitimacy and reality (Bruner, 2002, 124). The dimension of narrative and that of narrating about oneself is not only what constitutes our peculiar way of being humans, but the privilege means by which we make order in our lives and experiences and this also emphasizes the therapeutic side of narration.
