Abstract

Everyday life attests to the centrality of stories in our thinking. We make sense of personal and world events alike by putting them in a story, and when we ask someone, “what happened?,” we do not expect a mere list of facts but a pattern of identifiable actors and actions, related together within beginnings and endings. Recently, theorists of everyday life have affirmed this human need for narrative while some legal theorists, sociologists, philosophers, and historians have begun to pursue their work by telling stories.2
