Narrative meta-cognition is the device composed by formal model and structural ingredients typical of narrations, a device which is established in the mind of those who enter narrative universes and which enables those who have it to recognise and understand the narrative texts while organising knowledge in narrative form. Therefore, narrative meta-cognition is a device which connects: it connects symbolic and cognitive ingredients through story-telling; it connects each subject to real and imaginary words shaped through story-telling, it connects different subjects sharing these experiences. In contrast with other meta-cognitive devices, often limited to other and more specific epistemic domains, narrative meta-cognition enables the subjects who possess it structurally to store up and elaborate very different symbolic and cultural data; therefore, such data can become ingredients of the personal identity (autobiographic consciousness) and devices of representation and judgement (representations and visions of the world). For these reasons, the narrative meta-cognitive device appears to be a truly phenomenological paradigm: thanks to it, real events and symbolic constructions which could simply accumulate in an undifferentiated and incoherent cognitive universe, can instead develop potentialities for interconnection and meaning thanks to the narrative forms through which they get organised and ordered. As narrations, these levels of order and meaning are never established once and forever; instead, they are characterised by processing, dynamism and continuous re-negotiation.

Abstract

Narrative meta-cognition is the device composed by formal model and structural ingredients typical of narrations, a device which is established in the mind of those who enter narrative universes and which enables those who have it to recognise and understand the narrative texts while organising knowledge in narrative form. Therefore, narrative meta-cognition is a device which connects: it connects symbolic and cognitive ingredients through story-telling; it connects each subject to real and imaginary words shaped through story-telling, it connects different subjects sharing these experiences. In contrast with other meta-cognitive devices, often limited to other and more specific epistemic domains, narrative meta-cognition enables the subjects who possess it structurally to store up and elaborate very different symbolic and cultural data; therefore, such data can become ingredients of the personal identity (autobiographic consciousness) and devices of representation and judgement (representations and visions of the world). For these reasons, the narrative meta-cognitive device appears to be a truly phenomenological paradigm: thanks to it, real events and symbolic constructions which could simply accumulate in an undifferentiated and incoherent cognitive universe, can instead develop potentialities for interconnection and meaning thanks to the narrative forms through which they get organised and ordered. As narrations, these levels of order and meaning are never established once and forever; instead, they are characterised by processing, dynamism and continuous re-negotiation.
