Vivre la catastrophe : structure du vécu, temporalisation et intégration biographique

Abstract : The purpose of this article is to understand the catastrophic experience and the resulting processes of breaches, ruptures and existential transformations from the point of view of the subject who experiences it. The approach that is preferred here for thinking about a hermeneutic of the disaster, on an individual and collective scale, is that of the biographical narrative, as it is thought of by the current of life histories in training. The study presents a first-person narrative of a catastrophic experience, in the form of successive narratives, composed and socialized within the framework of Life History in Training seminars. The proposed examination of the narratives focuses on the processes involved in the dicibility of the catastrophic experience, its narrative configuration and its expression/reception within a group. The aim is to characterize the processes that contribute to the accomplishment of the narrative ordeal and to formalize the forms of reworking generated by the biographical narrative.
