Summary/Abstract: This volume includes eight complementary articles that relate to the empirical, methodological, analytical, interpretive and theoretical aspects of the narrative-biographical research. The basic linking assumption of these works is a departure from the trend, still dominant in Poland and especially visible in the social sciences, modeled on the ideas taken from the natural sciences. The co-authors of Autobiography―Biography―Narration, positioning themselves between their source areas of knowledge (pedagogy, psychology, anthropology, sociology and literary studies) and a transdisciplinary auto/biographical research plane, pick up as their starting point the processual perspective of the socio-cultural world, whose central element is the active subject as the creator of his/her own biography. Suchassumptions (expressed explicitly and implicitly) provided the basis forreports on the Authors’ own research projects (cf. in particular the textsby Karolina Dudek and Anna Kurpiel) and a framework for ordering the purely theoretical aspects of narrative-biographical studies (cf. the articleby Katarzyna Gajek).
