Personal narratives as the highest level of cognitive integration

Jacob B Hirsh, Raymond A Mar, and Jordan B Peterson. (forthcoming)


We suggest that the hierarchical predictive processing account detailed by Clark can be usefully integrated with narrative psychology by situating personal narratives at the top of an individual's knowledge hierarchy. Narrative representations function as highlevel generative models that direct our attention and structure our expectations about unfolding events. Implications for integrating scientific and humanistic views of human experience are discussed.
