Understanding & Autofiction
The article presents an attempt to define autofiction in a specific philosophical and historical context. In a weak ontology, the alienated individual of developed urban societies operates a change in his discursive strategy, replacing the chronological description with the narrative means of fiction. This change has multiple consequences, including the emergence of tension between narrative dialectics and existential truth. The significance of autofiction is built from both personal truth and fiction, and the ultimate criterion of this discursive genre is not the artistic realization, but the truth about (own)life.
