1. Narrative is made narrative by what is represented. Narrativity implies a temporal sequence representing changes of – interior or exterior – state. A state is to be understood as a set of properties which refer to an agent or to the external situation at a particular point in time. Wherever changes of state are represented we have to do with narrative. So the concept of narrativity is not limited to verbal arts or to literature in a broad sense but includes wide ranges of culture and science. Narrativity is therefore not congruent with literarinesse.
