Überlegungen zum Appellpotential narrativer Kombinatorik
Considering the immensity and ubiquity of the persistent demand for narratives, any narratology must deal with the reasons for this obvious attractiveness. In this paper, the appeals of the narrative genre are studied from the view-point of the reader. I argue that the aspect of fiction, inherent in any narrative, has the potential for turning readers’ cognition and emotionality into a special and delightful experience feeding on the very difference between the fictiveness of narration and the reality of life. Thus questioning the emphasis of cognitive narratology on the integration of narrative into universal cognizing dispositions, I take up the discussion with the basic tenets of the cognitive approach to narration.
