The word entropy means a system's intrinsic for transformation. Using an oxymoron, Prigogine defines
The Laws of chaos as recognizing constants in dynamic systems without predictable orientation. From the beginning of the 1900s, a change of focus occurs: to include the incidence of instability when assessing every set of manifestations. From physics, through medicine, through psychology, to literature, the perspective of research changes radically. In what way does an autobiography metabolize and tame the unexpected ? The articles published here highlight how some authors identify recurrences in the bumpy ride of their existence; others make the act of narrating coincide with the here and now of events, with their fragmentary manifestation, or at the very moment of their emergence from memory. Such different approaches do not ascribe objectivity to memory, which is quintessentially entropic. By doing so, they do not mean to record the content of memory but rather to indicate how to generate and organise the meaning of memory.


La parola entropia significa capacità intrinseca di un sistema di trasformarsi. Leggi del caos definisce con un ossimoro Prigogine (1993) il riconoscere delle costanti in sistemi dinamici senza un orientamento prevedibile. Dall'inizio del Novecento viene ad imporsi un cambiamento di focus : includere l’incidenza dell’instabilità nello studio di ogni insieme di manifestazioni. Dalla fisica alla medicina, alla psicologia, alla letteratuza cambia radicalmente l’ottica della ricerca. In che modo un’autobiografia metabolizza e addomestica l’imprevisto ? Gli articoli qui pubblicati mettono in luce come alcuni autori colgano nel proprio vissuto accidentato delle ricorrenze; altri fanno coincidere l’atto di narrare con l’hic et nunc degli eventi, col loro manifestarsi frammentario, o col momento stesso del loro emergere. Questi approcci diversi vanno ben aldilà di una trascrizione della memoria autobiografica – che è per antonomasia entropica –, essi intendono piuttosto indicare come generarne e strutturarne il senso.
