Towards a narrative psychology of meaning

the

abstract

In this article I argue that the most significant in the narrative is not that he orders it, and what range of activities it allows us to realize. On the narrative better thought of as the verb “to narrate”, “tell”, because it is an active form of self-expression. I would argue that the primary function of the story is the objectification of life experience and our judgments in specific time and space. The narrative takes judgment and experience in the game, in particular the action space that exists here and now.

currently, there is enormous cross-disciplinary interest in the concept of narrative. Narrative is a hot topic. He's everywhere! And it's a wonderful trend. I agree that in some sense of the narrative necessary for understanding of our experience and judgments about life.

But what is “narrative”? Let's look at this concept as a problem. I again and again notice that return time and time again to this issue. What narrative is? And what is narrative psychology? Of course, these are difficult issues. Narrative is an elusive concept and narrative psychology, too. Perhaps the reason lies in the fact that the wide dissemination of the term “narrative” has made its stretched and overloaded. Its value is eroded.

Studying the history of the concept of “narrative” Governed (2010) consider at least 4 different narrative turn in theory, literature, historiography and the social Sciences and language. Each concept of the narrative was its own distinct path of development. Before you try to give this another term for literary theory or linguistics approximate value, psychology, like other social Sciences, apparently gave this word the meaning impressive metaphors.

But the narrative is something else. It is an excellent filler and an empty vessel that takes the form of what is needed to Express the one who uses it, in accordance with his or her preferences. Says Hoversen (2006) in the social Sciences “something else” usually involves the life; narrative is a powerful metaphor for understanding life.

This view is convincing. Personally, I see my job as contributing to the narrative turn in social Sciences. My understanding of the metaphoric narratives. Narrative means something else. And I agree with the point of view Governina something else, it's life. As people feel life? The way they portray life in words? What are the implications of such a presentation?

an Interesting conclusion Governina is that if narrative is metaphor, then why would the narrative not to be something else? Or isn't another metaphor to work with the same success? I'm not going to challenge this understanding of the narrative. That narrative is a metaphor is not necessarily a fallacy. I believe that the narrative metaphor is important to understanding psychological processes and social reality, but we need some precision.

the Theoretical framework that I will describe is an attempt to give a basis of this metaphor to unlock its productive use to a more comprehensive and more accurate descriptions of the life experience. On the one hand the narrative metaphor should be open to a range of studies and interpretations. But on the other hand, it should be specific enough so we can identify what is narrative and why we make narrative, and it should serve us for paving innovative ways of understanding human lives.

As I see it, understanding the narrative should be focused on how narrative works in the creation of meaning. I believe this is a fundamental mission of the narrative and see this as the main reason for the attractiveness of this concept. Narrative allows researchers to understand the process of generation of meaning.
