  • Considers attained knowledges as being entwined with the act of telling. This provides a narrative sequence as facts that exist in their own right are interwoven into a contextual reality.
  • Chronology may provide an order in the form of sequencing ie. “one thing after another” but it does not provide patterning or an explanation of narrative as “one thing because of another”.


  • The term “narrative” = the combination of story (the action/sequence of events) and narrative discourse (the events as represented)


  • Ontography: A description of the nature or essence of things.
  • The rhetoric of lists: listing can be a practical way of reading and understanding film.
